Time difference in NTP Server and Client



We had a two hpux 11iv3 server with cluster . we have configured one as NTP server and other as client . But the time is not synchronizing from NTP server .There is a difference of around 1 minute , I think this will cause problem when the cluster comes up during failover .

Can someone tell me what should be the problem  . I have attached the ntp.conf from both servers .

Hello Mathew

You should specify that the local server operate in symmetric active mode with the remote server. This means that you should add in both configurations the directive:
peer <other_node_name> version 3
I believe that you could omit "version 3" as it is used by default (read the man page for NTP server)
