Drift file not updating
As a result, a user cannot access shares or query the directory.
This should turn on/off the kernels 11 minute mode?
# hwclock --debug hwclock from util-linux 2.21.2 Using /dev interface to clock. The hardware clock is set during shutdown (in your case, not being involved in any Windows thingies, in UTC). Ok, so that explains why NTPD_FORCE_SYNC_HWCLOCK_ON_STARTUP="yes" does not work for me.
date ..clock tick Time read from Hardware Clock: 2013/08/29 Hw clock time : 2013/08/29 = 1377764892 seconds since 1969 Thu AM UTC -0.849115 seconds # date Thu Aug 29 UTC 2013# ntpq -p remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter ============================================================================== 10.219.219.1 16 u 11 16 0 0.000 0.000 0.000 SHM(0) . The system time (kernel time) is changed by NTP (and is always interpreted as being in millisecs since the epoch in UTC). In short: If NTPD_FORCE_SYNC_ON_STARTUP is set to yes, "/etc/init.d/ntp start" calls "/etc/init.d/ntp ntptimeset", which synchronizes the system time and calls update_cmos afterwards which should set the hwclock if NTPD_FORCE_SYNC_HWCLOCK_ON_STARTUP is yes. Only the server in an included file (which I merged in my posting) is reachable.
