I’m here because i’m at my wit’s end, I can’t solve this issue. thanks in advanced for the help!
I have a script running every 5 mins, the script essentially calls ntpstat. There is a program monitoring the script (sensu), the monitoring provides a history of the check results, the problem is, the result seems to change quite often, every few minutes it seems to switch between 0 and 1, I’ve seen it switch to 2 before, but very rarely.
So far I’ve tried:
service ntpd stop > ntpdate [timeserver] > service ntpd start
double checking ntp.conf has the correct server (I only have 1 server as this is a test environment, could that be the cause of the issue?)
I’ve ensured time of all the servers where this is an issue is correct to within 2 seconds.
googling, seems no one else has had this issue
Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
