With the default LinHES /etc/ntp.conf file in place I cannot sync my mbe to a time server. I noticed my recordings were beginninnnng to start a little late than usual, so I checked the ntp.conf file on my debian workstation and could confirm with the command ntpdq -pn that it's receiving sync. I then copied my debian ntp.conf over to LinHES (adjusting paths as needed) and now my mbe can sync to a time server. Working ntp.conf is attached.

looks like pool.ntp.org is no longer responding.

Response is fine with ntpdate... [root@mythbox-mbe ~]# sv stop ntpd ok: down: ntpd: 0s, normally up [root@mythbox-mbe ~]# ntpdate pool.ntp.org 28 Jan 12:16:20 ntpdate[7629]: adjust time server offset 0.095194 sec

Is this still an issue?

Updated by mihanson over 9 years ago

The stock linhes ntp.conf does not work (for me), but the ntp.conf.linhes.new I originally attached does.

Switched to a slightly modified version of the npt.conf file that was attached.
This will be used for MBE and Standalone configuration.
FE and SBE will still point to the the DBHOST
