Re: system time

Did you stop the ntp (xntpd) daemon before running ntpdate?

Re: system time

Hi Sajjad

Did you enable NTP daemon in /etc/rc.config.d/netdaemons?

what is your ntp.conf file content?

Re: system time

Hi Sajjad Sahir,

if want to sync time each other you can use this command to sync time each other
/usr/sbin/ntpdate -b (ip of another server)

Re: system time

without ntp how could you synchronize your date in your network?

>>data2# ntpdate data1
30 Apr 15:26:35 ntpdate[2532]: the NTP socket is in use, exiting


this command will only applicable when there is a ntp server and synchonize its time to other server.

are you confused abt the time server or UTC time?

UTC is different thing. its aonly synchronize your server with UTC time.
