Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 619717
ntpd man page doesn't explain "-L interface" usage
Last modified: 2011-01-11 10:29:56 EST
Description of problem:
ntpd man page is out of sync.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Since ntpd-4.2.2, we can specify which interface not to listen
using -L [interface].
# ntpd -L
ntpd: option requires argument -L
usage: ntpd [ -46abdgnqx ] [ -c config_file ]
[ -f drift_file ] [ -k key_file ] [ -l log_file ]
[ -p pid_file ] [ -r broadcast_delay ] [ -s stats_dir ]
[ -t trusted_key ] [ -v sys_var ] [ -V default_sysvar ]
[ -L [ interface ] ] <=
[ -P fixed_process_priority ]
[ -u user[:group] ] [ -i jaildir ]
But online manual of the ntpd didn't explain about this.
-L Do not listen to virtual IPs. The default is to listen.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
However - DUPLICATE, closing - to track the issue in previously reported bugzilla.
