There /may/ be another issue with Windows 2000, in that NTP is producing
event-log messages about not being able to write ntp.drift.TEMP. I
checked the ntp.drift (actually in \WinNT\ in this installation) and it
didn't have a permissions entry for the ntp account, so I have now changed
the permissions to all-users, full control. It's about 30 minutes before
the next error message is due, so I'll try and check back then....
No, it seems to still want to write to ntp.drift.TEMP rather than
ntp.drift, so I've started NTP after checking the permissions on
ntp.drift. Check back in just over an hour....
Well, now it /is/ writing to ntp.drift.TEMP, but seem to have deleted the
file ntp.drift. I don't understand this behaviour.
