Hi Joey,

For rdate to work, the following statement in inetd.conf (of the host) must
be uncommented,
     time    stream  tcp     nowait  root    internal

Killed the inted process and restart it. Connection from the slave nodes to
the master should be allowed now.

Kian Chang.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering about date updating on a cluster.  Does anybody do it and
I tried rdate and this did not work for some reason, it said that I could
connect to the host???  Also, I tried ntpdate and when for example I type:
ntpdate ns1.uwo.ca, it outputs the difference between the clock, but it
not update my clock???  If anyone can explain to me how to use one of these
programs I would appreciate the help.
