NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Hi All,
The NTP works fine on Open VMS7.3-2,But I cannot see it while I do a PS NTP on one node.I have a 4 node system and it works well in all four & also PS NTP shows in all three except the fourth.
I have checked the permissions,Secuirity,owner etc.

Working Node:

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Hi Prem,

1. Compare the contents ($ diff) of the failing node with one of the working nodes for file TCPIP$NTP.CONF

2. examine sys$specific:[tcpip$ntp]tcpip$ntp_run.log; for any clues as to why it failed (does the file even exist ? what about previous versions - are there any ? any errors ?)

3. I assume you're using a common uaf or there's nothing different about uaf tcpip$ntp account.

4. from the system managers account you can restart NTP on the failed node by issuing @sys$startup:tcpip$ntp_startup but I'd suggest looking for reasons as to why it's not running 1st.

Kind Regards
John.

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Hi John,

For question 1

I actually FTPed the file from working node to the other, NTP itself works fine, But I just cannot view it using PS NTP.
How ever I can see it in show system /net
NTP itself is working on all the nodes.

Question 2

I do not see a *ntp*run*.log file in sys$specific:[tcpip$ntp]

Question 3

UAF is not shared, But there is nothing
different

Showing node

TCPIP$NTP TCPIP$NTP [3655,7] TCPIP Normal 8 SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]

in non-showing node

TCPIP$NTP TCPIP$NTP [3655,6] TCPIP Normal 8 SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]

question 4
I have already done that.

Again NTP works fine on the non-showing node as well, its inconvinient that its just not showing

Best Regards
Prem.

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Hi John,

There are no errors in *ntp*run*.log files, Please see below NTP is running but in one
node it is TCPIP$NTP_1 and on the other it is TCPIP$NT_BG2918
thats why its not appearing on PS NTP

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

"ps" is not a VMS command.

SHOW SYMBOL PS (everywhere)

I _assume_ that "ps" is defined to use a
command procedure to do something like:

SHOW SYSTEM /PROCESS = *'p1'*

but if "ps.com" (or whatever) is missing the
asterisks on one system, that could explain a
lot.

Oh. Too late. But it was a fair guess.

TCPIP SHOW VERSION look the same everywhere?

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Like Steve, I assumed PS was some sort of SHOW SYSTEM x y z (not difficult based on the output provided). However I missed your point about it being NT_BG and actually running... oh what IP version I think 5.4 ECO 6 was the last for 7.3-2

I like my "ps" better anyway.

alp $ PS == "PIPE SHO SYS /CLUSTER | SEARCH SYS$INPUT NODE,"

Slightly better would be something like:

Never used this one myself ( http://h71000.www7.hp.com/freeware/freeware80/set_prcnam/ ) but there's always useful tools on the freeware, this one allows you to change a prcnam. The freeware is always worth a browse.

Look at the PIDs. This is _NOT_ a cluster PID syntax, but from a standalone VMS system!

And that is the most I will say about this, because I know just too little of the details of NTP, but those who do might have further questions based on this.

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Hi Jan, thought you'd still be sleeping off the celebration ! Hope you downed 10 !

Perm, are you sure this PID is NTP ? Does a $ show proc/cont/id=a999 really show tcpip$ntp.exe ? I ask as your cpu usage is v.small.

Also, long shot... is there are other prcnam called TCPIP$NTP_1 on the system ?

Indeed my thoughts too ! Perhaps not started via the documented/usual methods as it would have complained about being active !

Perm,

What does the output from

$ show log/tab=tcpip$startup_table reveal ?

Does the *NTP* logical contents (start time stamp) match that of $ f$getjpi("a999","logintim") ?

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Prem,

stop NTP on the 'non-working' node using @TCPIP$CONFIG. Make sure the process is gone. If not, use STOP/ID to stop it.

Then start NTP again using @TCPIP$CONFIG.

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Prem,

pid a999 TCPIP$NT_BG2918 is not the original NTP_1, as it login time is different from that shown in the logical name table. I suspect another copy was started and the first one killed off/died (you could use the accounting file or security log file or look for and odd .dmp files). Perhaps not worth it. You can simply stop and start as Volker suggests.

Top stop
stop/id=a999 (as mentioned by Volker) OR
@sys$startup:tcpip$ntp_shutdown

To start:
@sys$startup:tcpip$ntp_startup OR
@tcpip$config and exit (it will ask if you want to start NTP)

$ sho sys/net

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Prem,

TCPIP$NTP_1 should be automatically started by @TCPIP$CONFIG when starting the NTP service. The fact that it seems to only be started, if you use the ntpq command, indicates that there is something wrong.

Please have a look at the SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]TCPIP$NTP_RUN.LOG file.

on the 'failing' node:

Limit: 1 Active: 1 Peak: 1

This indicates that NTP seems to have been started by a 'connect'. NTP should have been started as a detached process and show up like this:

Limit: 1 Active: 0 Peak: 0

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Prem, check the accounting file records /sin also, is there a .DRIFT file ? does the dir/sec values match those on your working systems ? anal/aud/sin give anything ? (acc & anal/aud results obviously depending on your acc+security audit setting)

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Hi Volker,

in the showing node

> dir *ntp*

Directory SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]

TCPIP$NTP.CONF;19 TCPIP$NTP.CONF;18
TCPIP$NTP.CONF;17 TCPIP$NTP.CONF;16 TCPIP$NTP.DRIFT;2785
TCPIP$NTP.ORIG;1 TCPIP$NTP.TEMPLATE;1
TCPIP$NTP_RUN.LOG;170 TCPIP$NTP_RUN.LOG;169
TCPIP$NTP_RUN.LOG;168 TCPIP$NTP_RUN.LOG;167
TCPIP$NTP_RUN.LOG;166 TCPIP$NTP_RUN.LOG;165

in the non-showing node the *ntp*run*.log is not updated ( atleast thats what I see )

and for the drift file there is a strange file

ST24:SYSTEM> dir *ntp* /size/date

Directory SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]

NTP009066.;1 1 11-APR-2007 21:28:05.43

But I exactly do the same in the working node as well, incase if I do not see the NTP process.

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Prem,

are you using the same version of TCPIP on both nodes ($ TCPIP SHOW VERS) ?

Consider to completely stop and disable NTP and configure it again with @TCPIP$CONFIG.

Maybe there are some strange logicals or symbola on that node, that prevent correct operation of NTP. Even consider to temporarily rename the .CONF file, so see if TCPIP$NTP_1 starts correctly after enabling the NTP service.

I have already done that couple of times, Let me do a $ tcpip set noservice ntp

Re: NTP Works Fine,But I cannot see it in PS NTP

Have you $ type'd NTP00AC3D.;1 ? is this the ntp .log file ?

Do you set/use any symbols or logicals which supercede dcl commands; anything different on this system than on others in this area ?

Do you save accounting or have a security log file to review for any clues ?
