Do you have some idea or experience with this problem ? Thanks a lot 4 answer

RE: Problem with XNTPD

It seems that the errors are logged via errologger command, not directly by AIX.

Are you using xntpd or another ntp service?

Is xntpd up and running? See the output of "lssrc -s xtnpd".
What is the output of:

CODE

ls -l /etc/ntp*
cat /etc/ntp.conf 

If everything seems fine try to stop xntpd and execute "ntpdate <ntp_server_name>" and post here the results:

CODE

# date
¿correct date and time, or not?
# grep server /etc/ntp.conf
server ntpserver.mydomain.local
# lssrc -s xntp
¿Active or Inactive?
# stopsrc -s xtnpd
# ntpdate ntpserver.mydomain.local
# date
¿and now, correct date and time?
# startsrc -s xntpd
¿OK?
