Currently we have NTP server ntp-4.2.4p8 provided by Redhat RPM on RHEL 6.
We want to upgrade it either by RedHat Provided latest RPM package (
ntp-4.2.6p5 ) or by installing from source compile ( ntp-4.2.8p1 ).
We tested both upgrade ( on test machine of course) and facing the issue
that when we do install ntp-4.2.8p1 package from source , ntpdc commands are
not working. Below is the output
localhost: timed out, nothing received
***Request timed out
But ntpq -pn and ntpdate etc working fine and clients able to sync time with
We are using below guidelines for compiling NTP
below is the ntp.conf file.
# cat /etc/ntp.conf
server 213.X.X.X iburst
server 195.X.X.X iburst
restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 ::1
logconfig =syncevents +peerevents +sysevents +allclock
statistics clockstats cryptostats loopstats peerstats sysstats rawstats
Any idea why ntpdc is not working ??
