Description Daniel Roesen 2001-03-22 23:59:53 EST
Fresh server-class install using qa0322 tree on Compaq ProLiant 1600R.

# ping ns
PING ns.entire-systems.com ( from : 56(84)
bytes of data.
Warning: time of day goes back, taking countermeasures.
64 bytes from ns.entire-systems.com ( icmp_seq=0 ttl=255
time=2.758 msec

I can't see the system clock is running backwards. No NTP involved.
Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2001-03-27 16:04:57 EST
I'm seeing the same thing with the ping on the SysAdmin Survival CD 0.10 and
with the ping with qa0322 on our network here.  Like for Daniel, there don't
appear to be any obvious time issues involved here.....
Comment 2 Daniel Roesen 2001-03-27 17:19:28 EST
Same on qa0319 if that matters...
Comment 3 Daniel Roesen 2001-04-14 07:55:18 EDT
Problem persistent in the Seawolf final on completely different hardware.
Comment 4 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-04-18 19:32:42 EDT
this refers to the /other/ machine being talked to.
Comment 5 Daniel Roesen 2001-04-30 05:23:27 EDT
The other machine's time isn't going backward, too. Can you shed some light on
the background of this warning?
