    • can't set multiple NTP servers in Date & Time despite bugfix 870

      OMV 3.0.89

      According to bugfix 870 it should be possible to enter a comma (or semi-colon) separated list of NTP servers in the Time servers field of the Date & Time settings.

      Entering 0.pool.ntp.org;1.pool.ntp.org writes the following line to /etc/ntp.conf :

      Source Code

      1. server 0.pool.ntp.org;1.pool.ntp.org iburst
      This doesn't seem right, each server needs its own line in ntp.conf :

      Source Code

      1. server 0.pool.ntp.org iburst
      2. server 1.pool.ntp.org iburst
      using ntpq -p command clearly shows "server 0.pool.ntp.org;1.pool.ntp.org iburst" isn't working.

      Would anyone please confirm ?
    • Yes, you're right. This is a regression after switching back from systemd to ntpd. Don't know how to fix that easily because the underlaying tools do not support XPath2 which is required to build the ntp.conf file. This will be fixed in OMV5. Until then only one NTP server can be supported.
      Absolutely no support through PM!

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.
