ntpdate - no servers can be used, exiting
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?
