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
......Is this VM? Then its normal, you can not update the realtime clock from within a VM.......
in this topic:
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
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
