    Ken, what I do is use ntpdate to set time, and fire it off by cron...

    40 0,4,8,12,16,20 * * * /usr/sbin/ntpdate (my time server)

    also tried netdate in place of ntpdate, though not on the ACID distro.

    I would like to sync the clock of my node every once in a while (like once a

    To do this I am using:

    ntpd -q

    I found that this kills one of my fobs (stops updating)

    So - I thought that I would just stop asterisk, do the time sync and start
    Asterisk  again.

    I run this script from crontab


    /usr/sbin/ntpd -q


    But when it gets to line 6 of astdn.sh  (service asterisk stop) it throws an
    error and does not really stop Asterisk. So it kills the fob.

    I am thinking this error has something to with the environment that crontab
    runs things in . how to fix?
