Description Steve Wardell 2004-10-29 12:52:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Installed the FC3 release candidate from 26-Oct and when firstboot
ran, there were 3 hostnames listed as default NTP servers (one was a
DSL hostname and some other foreign hostnames). I believe this should
list  clock1.redhat.com and clock2.redhat.com as defaults as it did in
Test 3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2005-07-07 06:23:44 EDT
Did you upgrade to fc3test3 or did you do a fresh installation? Old versions of
system-config-date did store IP addresses instead of hostnames and looked them
up reversely so the strange host names could well be this:

your machine's name -> your machine's public IP address at one point in time ->
your provider's name assigned to that IP address

some public NTP server name -> its IP address -> its canonical name

Could you reproduce that problem with FC4?

Looks good in FC4.
