Description of problem:
After configuring ntp, and getting my machines time syncronized, I noticed my
syslog entries still had the old timestamp on them. I had to restart syslog
manually to get it to recognize the new time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set time to bogus time using 'date'
4. check system date 'date' which should be ntpd sync'd date now
3.check /var/log/messages for entries with "bogus" time
Actual Results: Bogus time showed.
Expected Results: date/time from ntp server should show on all log files
Very sorry this bug seems to have escaped attention for so long -
I've recently taken over maintenance of the sysklogd package.
This bug is definitely fixed with all current sysklogd/glibc/ntpd
versions (unable to determine which component originally caused this
bug. Closing out.
