Time adj

Hello-

See if you have a time daemon of some sort running, this'll be xntpd or timed. If so, it's on by defautl and is trying to correct your system time by ticks and is not config'd to talk to a timeserver of any use to you. It failed to do the tick adj., not a hardware filure from what I can tell, you just may not care to sync to a timeserver and keep your own time, if so, turn off the daemon and set your date.

/var/adm/messages vs /var/log/messages

The /var/adm/messages in Solaris seem to log more system messages/errors compared to /var/log/messages in Linux. I checked the log level in Linux and they seem OK. Is there any other log file that contains the messages or is it just that Linux doesn't log great many things? (2 Replies)
