I've installed xntp3 v. 4v on our HP 9000/700s, IBM RS/6000s,
SGIs, and SPARCs. On all the HPs and IBMs, and on all but
three of the SGIs, it runs like a champ. But on three SGI
Indys and all of our SPARCs, it never manages to grab a root.
We do have five other Indys on which xntpd runs with no
I've looked at the hints for SGIs and SPARCs running SunOS 4,
but they're no help. Our Indys are running IRIX 5.3; the Suns
are running SunOS 4.1.3. I've tried various things--using
the prefer setting for a server, fiddling with the precision--
nothing works so far.
I'd appreciate any suggestions. Please email directly to me.
