Hi All,

I'm posting using google groups, hope this is not causing trouble (haven't got my main PC now).

Something strange is happening. Since I disabled power saving the two servers which were not syncing have been ok, always synced and the drift file was stable even though a little high on one server (-258 on one server, -58 on another).

I kept monitoring the drift file, but it was stable.

The other day I restarted the service because the log file was not being updated anymore.

Now all three servers are properly syncing as before, and the logs are back. But the server which had a drift file of -258 is now showing -1 and the one which was showing -58 is now showing -2. The third server has not changed its drift file, it's still around 21.
I restarted the service 3-4 days ago, so the drift file should have stabilised by now.

How is that possible?
