I have NTP configured on the SMU as follows:
CAL-HNAS-CL-1:$ ntp list
ntp: server = 10.x.x.196
ntp: server = 10.x.x.197
CAL-HNAS-CL-1:$ ntp date
ntp: time is set at boot time
The server will accept DC clock offsets during DC connects.
I have verified that the two DCs are running. However, their is a time skew of 3 minutes between the EVS hosting the CIFS server and the DC. I also noticed the cifs-dc-clock-accept setting which is currently on, but the recommendation is to turn it off. My understanding is that if the DC has a certain skew, the EVS will not allow authentication to it and remove it from the list of available DCs. We are having sporadic issues were people cannot create or modify files on the CIFS server, and this may be a possible cause.
Are there settings that tells how often it will check for NTP time while the server is running and what an acceptable time skew is? The only setting I can find is when the server boots.
Any help would be appreciated.
