Description of problem:
ntp.conf file created by redhat-config-date does not work.
ntpd is not able to contact the server specified.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-date
2. Check Enable Network Time Protocol
3. Choose a server from the drop-down list
4. Click OK.
5. Monitor ntpq -p
Actual Results: ntpd is unable to contact the server (reach value remains 0)
The clock remains unsynchronised.
Expected Results: ntpd contacts the time server, the reach value increments to
377 and the local clock is synchronised.
Markku Kolkka suggested on the Phoebe list that the restrict line should have a
numeric IP address, instead of a server name.
Should be fixed in redhat-config-date-1.5.6-3, which should appear in Rawhide in
the next day or so. QA, please verify.
Appears fixed to me, resolving as rawhide.
