Hi Team,

The base kernel that was shipped with SLES 11 SP4 is 3.0.101-63-default.
I'm trying to use sntp command from the machine and got the following error
as below
[kbyri at pavm43-6 ~]$ sudo /usr/sbin/sntp -s
sntp 4.2.8p2 at 1.3265-o Fri May 29 15:17:59 UTC 2015 (1)
kod_init_kod_db(): Cannot open KoD db file /var/db/ntp-kod: No such file or
2015-12-01 02:20:23.315697 (+0500) +0.000131 +/- 0.153687 s3

To debug this, I've freshly configured ntp client in SLES 11 SP4 step by
step and then
restarted the service again but to no avail.

The version of sntp is Ver. 4.2.8p2

Could anybody have any idea/knowledge how to resolve this? Any help would
be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
