Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 91619
/etc/ntp/ntpservers never referenced
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
There's a file: /etc/ntp/ntpservers. As far as I can tell, it is never
referenced. This leads to some confusion about how to set up NTP.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Results: Either the file shouldn't exist, or it should be used.
$ rpm -qf /etc/ntp/ntpservers
This file contains the list of servers that redhat-config-date shows in the gui.
By default, it contains clock.redhat.com and clock2.redhat.com. Any other
servers that you type into the entry widget will be stored in this file and
added to the list when you run redhat-config-date again.
I have added some header comments to the file that explains what it's there for.
This change should appear in redhat-config-date-1.5.12-1. Thanks for your report.
