Possible negative TS Split

Post by MiNdErAsR » Mon Oct 13, 2008 1:47 am

I've read the FAQ on syncing clocks. I'm running a crontab that checks/sets the system clock nightly and the time is correct. However I'm still seeing the error message about syncing server clocks.
[20:53:37] [bellevue.tx.us.afterx.net] Possible negative TS Split: bellevue.tx.us.afterx.net (1223859216 - 1223859229 = -13) [PLEASE SYNC YOUR CLOCKS!]

If I'm understanding this, the command /TSCTL ALLTIME showed me that the above server is the problem.
[21:27:59] -bellevue.tx.us.afterx.net- *** Server=bellevue.tx.us.afterx.net TStime=1223861290 time()=1223861279 TSoffset=11

All other servers had an offset of either 0 or 1. I tried using a different time server, but the tsoffset remains the same. Anything I can do to correct this?

TIA

I've got this msg sometimes at first link with some server. After squiting and connecting again, everything is OK

Didn't help.

Just a followup, and for others who might experience this same issue. Restarting the ircd appears to have corrected the problem. Go figure.
