More Info
									1). I have a mirrored array of my root disk, c0d0. I was playing with ZFS and I lost the array
some how. I have a backup of the full disk taken with TAR.
               Whenever I try and restore to disk from single user booting with CD I get write
errors. I cannot find a resoure on google.

Ans. Use tar command as follows to retrieve tape drive backup to current directory:
(a) Change directory where you would like to restore files:

# cd /path/to/restore
# pwd
(b) Now, do a restore from tape:

# tar xvf /dev/rmt/0

Cannot configure NTP client

Hi, I am trying to configure NTP client on my Solaris server, but I am getting error like:

Jan 13 10:53:33 SPOTS ntpdate [5142]: [ID 831711 daemon. error] no server suitable
for synchronization found

My ntp.conf file:


bash-3.00# pwd
bash-3.00# cat ntp.conf
# ident "@(#)ntp.client 1.3     00/07/17 SMI"
# /etc/inet/ntp.client
# An example file that could be copied over to /etc/inet/ntp.conf; it
# provides a configuration for a host that passively waits for a server
# to provide NTP packets on the ntp multicast net.

enable pll

enable auth monitor
driftfile /var/ntp/ntp.drift
statsdir /var/ntp/ntpstats/
filegen peerstats file peerstats type day enable
filegen loopstats file loopstats type day enable
filegen clockstats file clockstats type day enable
keys /etc/inet/ntp.keys
trustedkey 0
requestkey 0
controlkey 0

And when i am do

svcadm enable ntp

i am getting error - no server suitable for synchronization found

Could anyone help me please...

Thanks in advance,

Yes, IP is correct.

to incredible:
Could you please clarify what you mean?

I checked:

bash-3.00# ps -ef | grep xntp
    root 18069 18054   0 16:14:38 pts/2                 0:00 grep xntp
bash-3.00# ps -ef | grep ntpdate
    root 18071 18054   0 16:19:11 pts/2                 0:00 grep ntpdate


bash-3.00# svcs -a | grep xntp
bash-3.00# svcs -a | grep ntpdate

ntp is running (or better it is trying to start) on your system. but the given ntp server ISN'T a ntp
server or is not reachable:

Jan 13 10:53:33 SPOTS ntpdate[5142]: [ID 831711 daemon.error] no server suitable
for synchronization found

Thanks to all for the help!

Finally I could prove to our network admins that problem with FW... since they assert that they
have no problems from FW side... And actually - they opened UDP 23 port instead 123... ))))

So, problem is solved now.
