Description John Florian 2014-08-04 20:52:27 UTC
Description of problem:
Since upgrading chrony we've noticed that the daemon cannot connect to its upstream server after rebooting.  If we restart the service it will be fine however.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
chrony-1.30-1.fc20.x86_64 (upgraded from 1.29-1)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 1.30
2. reboot
3. run "chronyc source" and note the "?" in the S(tatus) column.
4. systemctl status chrony.service shows "Could not connect NTP socket to a.b.c.d:123 : Network is unreachable"
5. systemctl restart chrony.service
6. repeat steps 3 and 4; things should look fine now
7. repeat steps 2 through 6 and notice that it's repeatable

Additional info:
If we "yum downgrade chrony" (back to 1.29-1) the problem goes away.  If we upgrade again, it comes back.

Comment 1 Miroslav Lichvar 2014-08-05 08:36:10 UTC
Thanks for the report. It seems to be similar to the bug #1124059. The difference is that here the connecting fails immediately on start (possibly because the servers are specified in chrony.conf by IP addresses instead of names) and in the other bug it fails after offline+online commands issued on system suspend/resume.
