I'm having an incredibly difficult time trying to get my red hat server to sync its time to our 2K3 domain controller. I've been through numerous ntp.conf revisions and it always ends up that the domain controller is not even listed as a contender in the ntpq output. Even with my ntp.conf file at is most simple state:
it still fails to sync. It never receives an asterisk to indicate its synced up. If I include the local clock fudged to stratum 10 ntpd will even choose that over our domain controller. Something is quite wrong but I can't seem to figure out what. This command works as expected:
it sets the system clock appropriately so I believe communications are working just fine.
Please help. Thanks, Donovan
