I could use a bit of advice. My OpenIndiana machine can not update it's
time from the ntp servers. I noticed that the time was off by a couple
The machine has two nics:
bge0 - wan
bge1 - lan
and serves as a router for my lan. All the machines on my lan that use
ntp, make requests and get results happily except this machine:
$ ntpupdate us.pool.ntp.org
26 Apr 12:29:30 ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
However, with snoop I see the ntp request and a good response coming
back from the server.
NTP: ----- Network Time Protocol -----
NTP: Leap = 0x0 (OK)
NTP: Version = 4
NTP: Mode = 4 (server)
NTP: Stratum = 2 (secondary reference)
NTP: Poll = 3
NTP: Precision = 234 seconds
NTP: Synchronizing distance = 0x0000.02f4 (0.011536)
NTP: Synchronizing dispersion = 0x0000.0b11 (0.043228)
NTP: Reference clock = 220.127.116.11 (nist.netservicesgroup.com)
NTP: Reference time = 0xd343f237.4edb0b45 (2012-04-26 12:11:35.30803)
NTP: Originate time = 0xd343f710.0f35701d (2012-04-26 12:32:16.05941)
NTP: Receive time = 0xd343f70d.8134a6ad (2012-04-26 12:32:13.50471)
NTP: Transmit time = 0xd343f70d.81369de0 (2012-04-26 12:32:13.50474)
$ ntpupdate -d us.pool.ntp.org
spews what looks like a good response from the server.
$ ntpq -p
aways shows all servers in .INIT. state.
My drift file hasn't been updated since July 2011!
I tried binding ntpd to only bge0 and then tried binding it to only bge1
but that did not change things (I used the -I <interface> option).
Anyone have a clue what to look at next? My guess it's a conflict
between my NAT setup and this service running on the same host, but I'm
stumped what to do next.
