SME Server Update Notification
2008-4-19
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name : e-smith-ntp
Product : SME 7
Version : 1.16.0
Release : 15.el4.sme
URL : [(none)]
Summary : e-smith specific NTP configuration files and templates
Description :
Configuration files and templates for the NTP daemon.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

When ntps starts, it reads a step-tickers file to initialize the clock using
ntpdate. This is needed because if the drift from the hw clock and ntp
servers
is too high ntpd exits immediately, at which point it enters a loop as
ntpd is supervised so it restarts.

The problem is that the template for step-tickers, by default, uses
smeserver.pool.ntp.org which doesn't exist (only [0-3].smeserver.pool.org
exist).

Therefore choose the correct step-ticker for pool.ntp.org hosts.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Sat Feb 09 2008 Gavin Weight 1.16.0-15

- Remove the expand-template as set in previous patch, as we already
expand correct places. [SME: 3868]

* Fri Feb 08 2008 Filippo Carletti 1.16.0-14

- Choose correct step-ticker for pool.ntp.org hosts. [SME: 3868]
