https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=261298 Bug ID: 261298 Summary: ntpd: /var/db/ntpd.leap-seconds.list wrong permissions/owner Product: Base System Version: 13.0-RELEASE Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: conf Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org Regularly, /var/db/ntpd.leap-seconds.list ends up being owned by root and permissions of 640. On restart of ntpd this leads to: Jan 18 06:14:56 ns00 ntpd: leapsecond file ('/var/db/ntpd.leap-seconds.list'): open failed: Permission denied The file should either be owned by ntpd (which ntpd runs as) or have permissions of 644. This happens because a) the file is owned by root:wheel and b) I changed umask in /etc/login.conf to 027 ntpd settings in rc.conf are: ntpd_enable="YES" ntpd_sync_on_start="YES" ntpd leapfile is checked and fetched daily as specified in /etc/periodic/daily/480.leapfile-ntpd the logic is contained in the ntpd_fetch_leapfile() function within /etc/rc.d/ntpd That function should take care of correct ownership of the file, so I propose to fix ownership to ntpd:ntpd there. However, there may be reasons why ownership root:wheel and permissions 644 is a better idea for some reason I have missed, thus I am not providing a patch. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
