Description Stephen Lawrence Jr. 2002-01-15 16:57:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010914

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set time to bogus time using 'date'
2.restart syslogd
3./etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd restart
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.
