Recently we have been having a lot of trouble with time
synchronisation between our samba DC and the domain clients. We are
not sure what started this issue since the Samba domain went live on
October 11, 2016 and the issues only began to surface this past
January but at some point the time on the clients and the DC diverged
enough that we began to get strange network errors. Once we figured
out that these were caused by time divergence they were not so
strange, but to begin with they were most mysterious.
In any case, we have resolved most of these issues. In dealing with
this I ran across
https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Time_Synchronisation which contains
Set up the ntpd.conf File on a DC
. . .
Now, on the FreeBSD host I see this instead:
# sockstat | grep ntp
root ntpd 6229 3 dgram -> /var/run/logpriv
root ntpd 6229 20 udp6 *:123 *:*
root ntpd 6229 21 udp4 *:123 *:*
root ntpd 6229 22 udp4 192.168.8.65:123 *:*
root ntpd 6229 23 udp6 ::1:123 *:*
root ntpd 6229 24 udp6 fe80::1%lo0:123 *:*
root ntpd 6229 25 udp4 127.0.0.1:123 *:*
root samba 766 24 stream /var/run/samba4/ntp_signd/socket
So I altered /etc/ntp.conf as follows:
However, as I have no idea what this does or how (or even if) al this
works I would like to have this setup explained to me.
