NTP service not able to start on 1 node of dual node cluster

I am having a bit of problems to get NTP running on a dual node cluster. On the 1st node the NTP service is started but on 2nd node it fails to start.

Some relevant system info :

Re: NTP service not able to start on 1 node of dual node cluster

%CLI-E-NOCMDPROC:
The account (presumably TCPIP$NTP) cannot open its LOGIN.COM (not found, no access right...) and because it is a captive or restricted account, it fails to login.
Check the SYSUAF for the LOGIN.COM and check, if the file exists and is accessible.
And remember to check from the failing node.

Re: NTP service not able to start on 1 node of dual node cluster

I suspected before it was some security issue but i thought it was related to the NTP config file and on the 2nd node this was owned by SYSTEM account while on 1st node it was owned by TCPIP$NTP account, however when i changed this it still didn't work.
A biut foolish from me that i assumed it got that far already while it was not even able to access the LOGIN.COM.

Thanks a lot.

This must be the problem :

XS52:SYSTEM> dir SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]LOGIN.COM/sec

Directory SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]

LOGIN.COM;1 [SYSTEM] (RWED,RWED,RE,)

Total of 1 file.

XS52:SYSTEM> dir smxs51::SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]LOGIN.COM/sec

Directory SMXS51::SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]

LOGIN.COM;1 [3655,4] (RWED,RWED,RE,RE)

Total of 1 file.

Will make the change an supply the update here.

Re: NTP service not able to start on 1 node of dual node cluster

LOGIN.COM;1 [3655,4]
I suspect this should be owned by TCPIP$NTP not [3655,4]

Yep but this is the account details :

XS52:SYSTEM> mc authorize sho tcpip$ntp

Username: TCPIP$NTP Owner: TCPIP$NTP
Account: TCPIP UIC: [3655,4] ([TCPIP$AUX,TCPIP$NTP])
CLI: DCL Tables: DCLTABLES
Default: SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$NTP]
LGICMD: LOGIN
Flags: Restricted

The UIC is the same.
