I have the following line in my root cron:
5 * * * * /usr/sbin/ntpdate ru.pool.ntp.org > /dev/null
That must hourly adjust system time via NTP.
But I discover that it works from time to time: some days just once, some
days 5-6 times a day I receive e-mail with text like
12 Mar 12:05:05 ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
But if I log in to server and run
# /usr/sbin/ntpdate ru.pool.ntp.org
everything always works OK: it says
12 Mar 13:51:57 ntpdate: adjust time server 126.96.36.199 offset
Maybe NTP server doesn't like when some client (my server) asks it such way
- once a hour in same minute - and blocks my queries?
