Seem to be having issues (especially with fed64) with talos slaves having really weird dates. We want to force a time sync on reboot so that we can be sure that dates on talos boxes can be trusted.
For reference see bug 556179.
Looks like |ntpd -q| works on snow leopard... set the time, then quit. I think I'm using openntpd -S on the n810s. Not sure what works on windows.
See also bug 561442. Do we need both ?
Has this still been a problem? I think John's work in 561442 should clean this up, and the machines are all running ntpdate on startup as well.
Well, it could matter for those machines currently outside the releng network (like the tools machines...)
It could, but *has* it mattered? It looks like we've fixed this two ways, one of which should affect non-releng buildslaves (running ntpdate at startup). If there's more to do, let's get down to brass tacks: which distro(s) and which environments?
Tools slaves have not been updated, so that would be tools-r3-fed001/002, tools-r3-fed64-001/002.
bug 646056 got all of our machines using an internal NTP server. I'm pretty sure that makes this bug a dupe.
