ive got a server runnins centos 3.7 on a 2.6 kernale and the latest Stable of cpanel and every day the server is half an hour ahead of itself resulting in my having to resync the server in WHM

anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? and how can i fix it?

Ive had a good read back thru old posts but no one seesm to give any example son ways to fix this

I assume a daily cron to rdate.cpanel.net would work but what would be the correct cron line to do this without causing any issues?

Go on, have a guess
Does it drift or is it always 30 minutes out? If it drifts it could be a kernel bug.

/scripts/upcp does a daily call to rdate anyway, so it should be doing this unless you disabled upcp from running.

Otherwise the following crontab line would do it at 01:00:

0 1 * * * rdate -s rdate.cpanel.net

Thanks

It drifts each day.

Im runnning the 2.6.9-34.ELsmp #1 SMP which i think you compiled ( or at least checked when you did the server up for us)
