ntp server keeps on changing time-local ntp server


hi all,

i configured one ntp server with sysncs time over network with it's local time, ntp server has not internet connectivity so it does's get synced from external ntp server, i enabled

Quote:
server 127.127.1.0 # local clock
fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 10
in /etc/ntp.conf so that server takes local time. Every thing is fine, problem is once set time via GUI it looks good, but when i check after one of two days time will be different, i guess its changing after a reboot, can anyone tell me how to set this thing.


Thank you.

with just that config, another ntp client would refuse to use it as it would have a strata that's too low with an undisciplined clock. I'd guess that "ntpq -pn" does NOT show that it's syncing anywhere? NTP without a route back to a strata 1 time source is often very frustrating. Have a look at orphan mode - http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Support/OrphanMode

Is your external ntp server i.e. 127.127.1.0 pinging & alive, from your local machine?

That is NOT an external address, it's a fudge in the config.
