apologies if I'm really missing something obvious here...
we have systems running ntpd started by startup script.
Typically the process dies at some time and the box's date stamp "erodes" over time.
So - how to keep the ntpd daemon running even when it dies?
inittab seems to be the answer thought I and so used the following
.... then ran init q of course.
Thing is when I kill off ntpd ... for testing purposes... it doesn't respawn...
so what am I doing wrong?
or am I barking up the proverbial trees? and if so... any obvious solutions?
