Description

On a CentOS 5 64, the reporting sometimes fails on the Hardware clock (RTC)

2013-01-02 18:47     result_success     Configure Time Settings     Corporate Security Policy     Hardware clock (RTC)     -     The hardware clock has been synchronized with the NTP time

It seems it happens only on Centos5 (debian 5 and 6 are ok, as well as sles10-sp2)

Actually, this is VERY surprising as the definition of the report is:

                (!windows.!ntp_hwclock_sync_error.!ntp_hwclock_synced)::
                        "@@ntpConfiguration@@result_success@@&TRACKINGKEY&@@Hardware clock (RTC)@@None@@$(g.execRun)##$(g.uuid)@#It is not yet time to synchronize the hardware clock with the NTP time. Skipping...";

                ntp_hwclock_synced::
                        "@@ntpConfiguration@@result_success@@&TRACKINGKEY&@@Hardware clock (RTC)@@None@@$(g.execRun)##$(g.uuid)@#The hardware clock has been synchronized with the NTP time";

The class ntp_hwclock_synced is triggered by an ifelapsed, are you sure that you did not trigger this during testing by nuking locks via cf-agent -K ?

Apparently there may be other reporting bugs in this Technique - please test thoroughly and fix all issues!

Since Support for 2.4 branch is over, retargeting this issue to 2.6

Given this definition of the reports, this bug is simply impossible:

                (!windows.!ntp_hwclock_sync_error.!ntp_hwclock_synced)::
                        "@@ntpConfiguration@@result_success@@&TRACKINGKEY&@@Hardware clock (RTC)@@None@@$(g.execRun)##$(g.uuid)@#It is not yet time to synchronize the hardware clock with the NTP time. Skipping...";

                ntp_hwclock_synced::
                        "@@ntpConfiguration@@result_success@@&TRACKINGKEY&@@Hardware clock (RTC)@@None@@$(g.execRun)##$(g.uuid)@#The hardware clock has been synchronized with the NTP time";

Rejecting. Please re-open if this is not the case (but we'll have to consider it as a CFEngine bug, then).
