Solving ntpd problem in Centos 5.2 Perfect server VM image
 
Hi everyone,

I suppose I have a ntp problem using "The perfect server Cent0s 5.2 VM Ware image.
Clock time is unconstantly not correct and I have message
"set_rtc_mmss: can't update from 59 to 0 "
when I don't login immediately after reboot.

I found this
Quote:

......Is this VM? Then its normal, you can not update the realtime clock from within a VM.......
in this topic:
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...t=set_rtc_mmss

Using a "brutal method" by simply removing ntpd from init.d folder cleared " " message but could only be used for testing !!

Clock time is actually 25 minutes later than correct time. This wrong time is confirmed when running /etc/init.d/ntpd !

Running this command after stopping ntpd
Code:

ntpdate pool.ntp.org
catches the correct time. So it works "from within a VM " !

So what's the best way to avoid this set_rtc_mmss message and keep this Cent0s server clock always at the correct time?

Great Thanks for your help or comments ;)

I'd try to set up VMware Tools first: http://www.howtoforge.com/vmware_tools_on_linux

Thanks for your answer Falko !

It didn't help. I think the problem comes from my machine ( Suse 10.2 + VM server 1.05) !!
No problem when running on an other pc running VMware server 2.0 on Ubuntu 8.04 !!

I have now reinstalled the pc with VMWare server 2.0 on Fedora 9 but .... see other topic ;)

Great thanks for the help.
