Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1285224
Time offset error: Host times seems to be adrift
Last modified: 2018-02-26 14:58:23 EST
Description of problem:
After doing a deployment of RHCI and RHEVM, there is a message in every host report:
Host times seems to be adrift!
Host reported time is 2015-11-25 08:40:20 UTC
Satellite 6 report creation time is 2015-11-25 08:39:32 UTC
Which is an offset of less than a minute
The offset varies from host to host, the difference is couple of seconds, but it is occurring in every host I now have in Satellite.
The /etc/ntp.conf seems to be the same for Satellite machine and for host machines.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a complete deployment of RHEVM
2. In Satellite, go to Hosts -> All hosts -> <choose one> -> Reports -> <choose one>
3. The message appears on top of the report
Host times seems to be adrift
Hosts times should have been synced and should be the same as the time on Satellite
I'm not seeing this anymore, I think the recent NTP changes fixed it.
Moving to ON_QA as we think this was fixed with prior work.
I was able to reproduce this using original reproducer steps for TP2 RC9 ISO. RHEV host seems to be fine, but on engine machine error is reported:
"Host times seems to be adrift!
Host reported time is 2016-03-15 09:36:31 UTC
Satellite 6 report creation time is 2016-03-15 09:35:53 UTC
Which is an offset of half a minute"
I'm going to try to reproduce using newer compose.
Reproduced using QCI-1.0-RHEL-7-20160315.t.0-QCI-x86_64-dvd1.iso.
Both the engine and the hypervisor report an offset.
Failed to reproduce using TP3 RC1 ISO.
The issue seems intermittent, I will try to reproduce using the same iso.
We believe this issue is fixed in the TP3 ISOs.
If you do find a problem please give us more information, we have not been able to reproduce this.
I was unable to reproduce this also for TP3 RC2.
Marking as verified.
