    setting up ntpd on 11.2 and using from 11.0 plus


    hello,

    I am rebuilding / updating my internal server. It is strange to me that 11.0 will not install on this ASUS M3A78 MB but 11.2 will go through.

    that aside,

    I am setting up the ntp server and run into new things, ntpdate is not used anymore so you have this long string : sntp -P no -r pool.ntp.org which does the same thing or a couple of other calls that may work. It seems that pool.ntp.org will not work however so I switched to another time server.

    pool.ntp.org does work on 11.0 however, it still uses ntpdate atm.

    I can use ntpdate to my server from other clients and get the time but I can't use Yast to set it up, it hangs ( or maybe it will eventually time out ) when you test the server in the gui tool.

    rcntp ntptimeset comes back with no server reached on the ntp server machine so I am not confident that it will auto update itself, which I think is an issue, the server will not respond to client queries after a day or two.

    where should I start? I am not sure I understand the problem really.

    Got Internet setup??Check the Firewall to see if the service is allowed access to external sources.
