Re: [Xen-users] NTP time issues DomU's

yes, changing this value allowed domU independent syncing, thank you very much!!

i agree on the config file option if possible ...

If you don't run ntp in the domU's, it should just work.

If you want to run ntp in the domU, try:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/xen/independent_wallclock

I guess we could be smarter about this, and make the wall clock
independent automatically if someone does an adjtimex syscall. Anyone
got any comments on this?


Don't auto-detect based on adjtimex. It would be too easy and too
confusing to accidentally make such a call once, and then not realize
that you would no longer be auto-synchronized.

Instead, make independent_wallclock be a config file option that is
overridable by proc.
