    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
    in this topic:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19414&highlight=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 ;)

    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.
