Description Ryan 2013-07-09 03:15:37 EDT
Description of problem:

Section 3.3.7 - Manualy adjusting system clock

1) Manually spelt wrong in title

2) when typing the commands listed, I get the following:

$ chrony
chrony version 1.28-pre1
Copyright (C) 1997-2003, 2007, 2009-2012 Richard P. Curnow and others

chronyc> password
password: (tried root password)
501 Not authorised --- Reply not authenticated
chronyc> makestep
501 Not authorised

After consulting the help file (e.g. chronyc> help) it states:

password [<new-password>] : Set command authentication password

So it seems the password option sets the command auth password, but then it should have set the password so this is confusing.
Comment 1 Ryan 2013-07-09 03:18:04 EDT
I am guessing that the password is the one defined in chrony.keys
Comment 2 Ryan 2013-07-09 04:10:46 EDT
after re-reviewing the content, I have determined that the only issue here is that I didn't read section 3.2.4, and that the prompt resulting from issuing the chrony command is wrong in section 3.3.7, so that's all that needs to change...
Comment 3 Ryan 2013-07-09 04:11:12 EDT
that and the spelling of manually
Comment 4 Stephen Wadeley 2013-07-09 15:58:55 EDT
Hello Ryan

Thank you for proof reading that section and for raising the bug.

I am going to improve the example as follows:

chrony> password commandkey-password

Where commandkey-password is the command key or password stored in the key file.

Plus attend to spelling and typos. 

Thank you
