This is my 1st post here. I have searched this error online for most of the day and am unable to come up with a fix for my problem. Even within the forum
I have Installed Debian Etch, I have updated all my software using apt
I wanted to the add the Linux machine to my Windows 2003 AD domain, for various reasons.
I followed a howto on configuring the machine to be added to the domain. Everything has worked fine. The machine is on the domain. Excpet I cannot log onto the machine using on of my domain users accounts. I suspected the time setting to be the problem because my time is wrong.
The timezone settings are correct. I have manually set the time using the "date --set" command
I have edited my "/etc/default/rcS" file and turned UTC off as well.
I have manually synced the time with my DC using the "ntpdate servername" command.
I have checked the time in my BIOS, I have checked my BIOS Battery. They are all ok.
Yet after rebooting the machine the time changes to almost 2 hours ahead of what it should be.
When I run ntpdate -q I get the error "ntpdate: no servers can be used, exiting"
In my ntp.conf file I have my DC set as the ntp server, I have checked on a XP machine and it is working fine as an NTP server, plus if it was not working correctly I would have logon issues with the XP machines as well.
I must be missing something somewhere can anyone help?
If you run
You may see something that you can easily fix that will be messing with the time on your server. For instance I had one server that didn't have any other reason to go to the internet (phone server)... so then I was able to see 'Network is unreachable' and then realize I needed to configure a gateway. After this simple fix nfsd worked fine.
