I used the following coomand to synchronize the ntpd server with my two hosts. My hosts configurations are Red Hat 9.0, P4, 3.2 Ghz, Ram 512 MB.
server /etc/ntp.conf is
and the client hosts /etc/ntp.conf are
server 192.168.0.4 # ip address of ntpd server
But when i run the command
root]# service ntpd start
ntpd: Synchronizing with time server: [FAILED]
Starting ntpd: [ OK ]
shows the time doen not seems to be syncronized properly. What is the problem i couldnot solve.
Further when i used the GUI mode, synchronization happens properlly at the first time.
But then again when i change the server time and cheks the GUI on clint matchine to syncrhonize the time it wont happen properlly.

ntpdate/ntpd time is in UTC instead of local time?
- date: May 4, 2011
I live in UTC+3 time-zone. If I execute ntpd or ntpdate, I always get the UTC time instead of UTC+3. For example:
:/home/ubuntu# ntpdate -q pool.ntp.org
server 220.127.116.11, stratum 2, offset -0.002151, delay 0.04903
server 18.104.22.168, stratum 1, offset -0.002581, delay 0.04958
server 22.214.171.124, stratum 3, offset -0.000056, delay 0.04654
4 May 17:24:46 ntpdate: adjust time server 126.96.36.199 offset -0.002581 sec
..actually the clock is 20:24. What might cause such issue? If any additional information is required, please ask
Howto use ntpd time synchronization???
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 10, 2004
I have installed the ntp package, but don't yet know how to make it set my desktopclock to the right time.
Read the manuals, but holy <beep> what a lot of techtalk! I get lost in a jungle of technical details, and my "dummy-feeling" becomes stronger after each line of the man-pages.
Does anybody have experience with this? I will be very glad with some practical advice.
Thnx in advance!
[SOLVED] GDM login fails the first time, succeeds the second time
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 13, 2012
I'm running Slackware 13.37 with Robby Workman's Xfce 4.8 and a pile of addons either from SBo or from myself.
Since yesterday I have a strange error. When starting up the machine, the first login attempt with GDM fails... or rather, it succeeds, but then I have an error message informing me that my session lasted less than 10 seconds. Now, if I validate that and get back to GDM, I can retry a login, and this second attempt succeeds.
Here's the .xsession-errors file:
First time user Ubuntu fails to boot from LiveUSB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 8, 2010
Hi, I'm a tentatively aspiring Windows escapee so please go easy!
I downloaded Ubuntu desktop 10.10 on to my Acer 5741 laptop (which I checked online for comptability), following the site's instructions to the letter. I used the USB installer to create a live USB which seemed to go fine. I then restarted as instructed and changed the USB to be selected to boot. However, from that point, the OS fails to load. I get several pages of code loading, then a screen with a logo at the bottom, then my screen just goes dark.
I've been using Windows 7 to download etc.
Any help very gratefully appreciated. I had a good trawl online and on these forums before posting but couldn't find anything specific troubleshooting this.
xwindows fails over ssh after a certain amount of time
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 8, 2010
I'm having the following problem with x-windows over ssh:
Using xclock as an example GUI program, if I do "ssh -X 123.456.789.012"
it will bring up a clock.
If I don't run xclock immediately, but wait for 10 minutes or so, xclock fails with this error:
"Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyCan't open display
Failed initializing GUI, exiting"
If I log in and run xclock, then 10 minutes later start a 2nd instance of xclock, the 2nd instance loads fine too. In other words, the 1st instance of xclock seems to be keeping the GUI interface alive.
So I have two questions:
1. How can I keep the GUI interface alive, without needing to run a first instance of xclock?
2. If the GUI interace has died, how can I get it back without logging out and back in again?
I've used xclock as an example, but this applies to any x-windows interface.
Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.
Server time/date is wrong even if ntpd is running
- date: March 20, 2011
I've an Ubuntu Server installation (Karmic) on a VPS hosted in Germany.
My activity is currently based in Italy and I've set the timezone to Europe/Rome, using: dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
If I run date on my home PC I get:
dom 20 mar 2011, 21.09.40, CET
If I run it on my server, I get:
Mon Mar 21 20:26:56 CET 2011
that is of course wrong. I've installed and configured ntpd on the Ubuntu server, but it looks like it's not working correctly.
How can I fix this?

net time set Command Fails with Success
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 12, 2010
On Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4, I enter the command:
net time set -I 188.8.131.52
Where 184.108.40.206 is the IP address of a Windows Server 2008 time server. The response is:
/bin/date 071218072010.20 failed. Error was (Success)
The actual clock time does not get updated. However, evidently it did really communicate with the time server on 220.127.116.11, because the value in the response 071218072010.20 does correspond to the time on the time server, albeit in the somewhat bizarre format MMDDHHMMYYYY.SS.
Iíve been Googling around, but havenít found an explanation of this Success failure! How can I get it to actually succeed?
[SOLVED] Fresh Install fails with Invalid Partion Table every time
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 18, 2008
I am having problems installing Ubuntu. I recently dropped by Best Buy and purchased the latest copy of Ubuntu. While I know I could have downloaded the software, I wanted to help promote the selling of Linux at a favorite retailer.
After having installed multiple flavors of Linux before I expected to plop my new CD into my drive, nuke all the partitions and load a fresh operating system. The same physical hardware had previously had multiple flavors of Suse and Mandrake and should easily run Ubuntu.
Ubuntu does boot into the installation and installs. Upon performing the initial boot, the system dies with a "Invalid Partition Table" message. It does this if I use all the default or attempt to manually partition the drives.
I suspect the problem might be related to how Ubuntu sees the hard drives. My system has two controllers holding a total of 4 IDE chains. I have a single IDE drive which I plan on hosting the OS. A Promise Ultra 133TX2 holds four 300 GB ID
