Description John L. Chmielewski 2002-06-05 12:42:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523

Description of problem:
hostnames are permitted in the ntp.conf and step-tickers files, but unless IP
addresses are used in /etc/ntp/step-tickers, ntpd will fail when the computer is
started, because named is not yet running.  If ntpd is restarted after the
computer is up, it is successful.  The ntpd script should start before the named

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create /etc/ntp/step-tickers with one line: tick.usno.navy.mil 
2.do a "service ntpd restart" (see that it successfully starts)
3.reboot computer, and watch as ntpd tries to start, it will indicate  that it

Actual Results:  ntpd will fail when the computer boots, but if you restart ntpd
using the service command it will start OK.

Expected Results:  ntpd should have started

Additional info:

If step-tickers has an IP address instead of a host name, it will start properly
when the computer starts.  The named service should start before the ntpd
service to correct this problem.

See also bug 46464.

Also, I think in your first paragraph, you mean that named should start before
ntpd, correct?
