My NTP on Opensuse 11.0 seems to drift away slowly and reach up to 1200 offset and time gets skewed by an hour or so. I restart NTPD every night but that doesn't help.

Here's what my ntp logs says:

Code:
ntpd[2527]: ntpd exiting on signal 15
ntpd[5733]: no reply; clock not set
"ps aux | grep ntp" shows ntpd is running.

/etc/ntp.keys

Code:
1 M e3e8d1a
cat /etc/ntp.conf

Code:
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift/ntp.drift          
logfile /var/log/ntp                     
server ntp1.company.tld
I tried using IP address instead of FQDN & no luck there. I can resolve ntp1.company.tld (using nslookup) and ping it.

cat /var/lib/ntp/drift/ntp.drift

Code:
447.839
tcpdump from the ntp server shows I receive packets when I restart NTPd on the OpenSUSE client.

Thanks for any help.
