Have you set xen.independent_wallclock = 1
in the sysctl of the VM guest?
Or are you talking about the manager? and is the manager running as a guest? Are you using PVM?
Thanks for the reply. This is a guest that will be running OVM manager, but for a different pool.
This is a vanilla install of OL6 PVM. We have about 15 guests running OL5 or OL6 in this pool. They all use NTP but this guest is the only one so far that is getting these error messages in the syslog.
I've tried in the past to set the xen.independent_wallclock parameter in sysctl.conf, but have had no success, If I run sysctl -p, I get the following.
# sysctl -p
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 1
net.ipv4.conf.default.accept_source_route = 0
kernel.sysrq = 0
kernel.core_uses_pid = 1
net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies = 1
kernel.msgmnb = 65536
kernel.msgmax = 65536
fs.file-max = 6815744
kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.shmall = 1073741824
kernel.shmmax = 4398046511104
net.core.rmem_default = 262144
net.core.rmem_max = 4194304
net.core.wmem_default = 262144
net.core.wmem_max = 1048576
fs.aio-max-nr = 1048576
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 9000 65500
error: "xen.independent_wallclock" is an unknown key
In any event, I don't have this parameter set in any of my guests and ntp is able to set and keep the clock synced going forward.
I went through that entire document. No help there.
