I have a network of solaris/linux servers that have ntpd configured to use a single internal server of stratum 2 through a DNS alias/CNAME. This is server is down for some time and the client servers' clocks are out of sync.
Since we have another internal server of stratum 1 (PPS), the DNS CNAME has been modified to point to the new server (which is up).
ntpq -p i can see that the client servers are still pointing to the old server.
It looks like they are not resolving again the peer name, so they don't get the new server IP.
How do i smoothly update ntpd's peer list ?
If i restart (x)ntpd, it's going to create timejumps. I wish ntpd would have updated its peer list / configuration and smoothly synced with the new server.
