ntpdate not returning result
Last modified: 2013-10-20 18:46:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Running ntpdate against working NTP server does not display any
information whatsoever, even in verbose mode.
A tcpdump on the client machine confirms the request is being sent and
a response is being received from the NTP server, however it is just
not displaying this result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Nothing. Not even an error.
Expected Results: Usual ntpate output.
this is selinux... ntpdate does not have any permissions to write to the terminal...
you may pipe the output to "cat" :)
# ntpdate | cat
reassigning to selinux policies..
Please update to the latest policy, which fixes this problem.
