Hi List

I have an issue with a ntp client running Linux SuSE 9.3

Our Network ntp server is a Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1A.

*I initialy had an* error regarding seeing* *"Bad file descriptor" 
errors in /var/log/ntp* *then made sure that only one  instance of ntpd* 
*is running socklist command and ps -auxxx|egrep ntpd thus  run * *kill 
-9 PID's and restart ntpd /etc/init.d/ntpd restart. This seemed to fix 
things and when I run date command volia I thought I fixed it So thus to 
test after weekend.
*Thus I have checked this morning using date command and I the ntp 
client is 20 minutes ahead of our network ntp server.

Thus I have checked the /var/log/ntp lof file::

15 Dec 10:39:14 ntpd[11875]: synchronized to LOCAL(0), stratum 10
15 Dec 10:40:22 ntpd[11875]: synchronized to, stratum 3
15 Dec 10:59:44 ntpd[11875]: kernel time sync disabled 0041
15 Dec 11:01:52 ntpd[11875]: kernel time sync enabled 0001

Thus doesn't look that I have an issue.

Please advice and any suggestions welcomed.
