NTP Servers stuck in "init" state.


Recommended Posts

Two NTP servers are configured on my VPX's, but when I run "show ntp status" I see the following:

> show ntp status
     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
==============================================================================
 10.1.1.1     .INIT.          16 u    - 1024    0    0.000    0.000   0.000
 10.1.1.2 (a7 .INIT.          16 u    - 1024    0    0.000    0.000   0.000

My initial thought was the NTP authentication string was wrong, but I don't actually see anywhere to provide a string in ADC. Is it there and I'm just missing it or is this not needed for some reason?

 

Thanks.

I ran across that first link yesterday and followed the steps, but according to what I saw my NTP servers are being recognized and my time appears synchronized, but the are still in the "init" state.

 

I see some entries that certainly look odd in the ntpd.log, but I don't know how to determine their meaning. Below are my findings and they seem to essentially be repeating:

have you tried from shell :

# ntpdate -q  <ip-address ntp server>

 

I did yesterday, but I just did it again as well and received the following:

 

root@NetScaler1# ntpdate -q 10.1.1.2
server 10.1.1.2, stratum 4, offset 189.262380, delay 0.02600
29 May 13:43:21 ntpdate[30565]: step time server 10.1.1.2 offset 189.262380 sec
