Ntp not updating clock
The systemd system and service manager is designed to be mostly compatible with Sys V init and Upstart.
I have a 2008 SMB Server that keeps losing time on its internal clock, I have tried to setup some utilities that setup sync with the atomic clock but they wont run, how can I resolve this time loss ?
is a system and service manager for Linux operating systems.
It is designed to be backwards compatible with Sys V init scripts, and provides a number of features such as parallel startup of system services at boot time, on-demand activation of daemons, or dependency-based service control logic.
(Generally it is best for a guest VM machine to take its clock from its host hypervisor.) See this 'Known Issue' in the NTP documentation -- it gives some more detail.
The first thought that came to mind was immediately that I had not configured the Unfortunately, even after restarting this machine, the same error was still occurring.
So now, after some research, I found that I would need to run an initial configuration(or to be precise, synchronization) of the dates on my Linux machine with another, reliable and accessible server.
I chose to use the DNS server itself (with the IP of 192.168.0.20), as I would be using it to maintain the DNS records for all of my RAC nodes.
One problem I'm encountering is that my script to synchronize the time using ntpdate and then write that time to the hwclock is failing.
