ntpdate puts out invalid argument msg
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
When using ntpdate to set the time/date on an Alpha, ntpdate gives the
message Can't adjust the time of day: Invalid argument when it finds a time
server. JBJ intimates that this may be due to a missing patch in the
(Note: the patch I was remembering is the 500/HZ setting limit of 0 because
HZ is different on alpha).
The adjtime syscall is returning EINVAL. Off to glibc for further investigation
nm ntpdate | grep adjtime
It works for me on this Alpha here, with the xntp3 package from 6.1.
