0000081: Ntpd - disable sanity check
I run efw 2.1 on vmware server on HP DL 360 g4p, 1 G RAM, 2 x 36Gb , 15k HDD
i 've added this : "clock=pit nosmp noapic nolapic" in /boot/grub/grub.conf

Afterwards time slew isn't much as before. But still it would be nice to run time accordingly.

I just can't find where to add this line : 'This sanity check can be overridden by adding the command-line switch "-g" when starting ntpd'

Thank You.

I think i've found it.
/etc/sysconfig/ntpd says :

# Drop root to id 'ntp:ntp' by default.
OPTIONS="-A -u ntp:ntp -i /var/lib/ntp -p /var/run/ -c /etc/ntp/ntp.conf"

# Set to 'yes' to sync hw clock after successful ntpdate.

vmware image need a special kernel optimized for vmware with HZ=100 in order to fix the problem with the clock slipping back and forth.
This need still to be done.
