Sure. NTPd's behaviour is conservative. It quits if the time delta between current system time and reference clock time is over something like 1000s. The daemon goes away, if you "pidof ntpd" you won't be able to find it running.Mansome wrote:It doesn't always work unless I run that command. Any reason why it isn't?
Code: Select all
-g Normally, ntpd exits with a message to the system log if the offset exceeds the panic threshold, which is 1000 s by default. This option allows the time to be set to any value without restriction; however, this can happen only once. If the thresh‐ old is exceeded after that, ntpd will exit with a message to the system log. This option can be used with the -q and -x options.
