Re: ntpd sync fails on boot

Thanks for your suggestions. (Yes I know
FC7 is old; might that be the problem?)


any ntpd messages in /var/log/messages during boot? If ntpd detects what the problem is, it often gives a clue there.

do you see any messages on boot where network is being delayed?

Is it only the ntpdate failing or is ntpd also not finding hosts on boot?
if only ntpdate, then I would suspect the /etc/ntp/ntpservers or /etc/ntp/step-tickers to have a bad name. if it is both ntpdate and ntpd failing, then I would suspect some problem with DNS, but that usually leaves traces in /var/log/messages.
