Good morning,

since I went from chrony 3.3 to 3.5-r2, it is driving me nuts. Everyday, I have thousands of "chronyd[2964]: Selected source 213.209.109.45" and "chronyd[2964]: Can't synchronise: no majority" in my log.
So I replaced the gentoo.pool.ntp.org servers with the ones from de.pool.ntp.org - no effect.
Then I defined one single server (server 134.76.249.201) - no effect.
I even removed all pools and servers from the config file - chrony still logged a huge number of different sources.

This is my config file on 2 of my systems (I removed all comments):
Code:
driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift
makestep 1.0 3
rtcsync
server 134.76.249.201


These are the log entries after I restart chronyd:
chrony-3.3

chronyd[6442]: chronyd version 3.3 starting (+CMDMON +NTP +REFCLOCK +RTC -PRIVDROP +SCFILTER -SIGND +ASYNCDNS -SECHASH +IPV6 -DEBUG)

chronyd[2964]: Selected source 162.159.200.1
chronyd[2964]: Selected source 85.10.240.253
chronyd[2964]: Selected source 162.159.200.1

...and so on.

Does chrony-3.5-r2 come with any "hard coded" sources? For me it seems, as if it overrides its own config file...

Kind regards,
Jimini

Not much help I know - but for me 3.5-r2 respects my server directives just fine.
Code:
Nov 16 19:36:11 borg chronyd[12984]: chronyd version 3.5 starting (+CMDMON +NTP +REFCLOCK +RTC +PRIVDROP +SCFILTER -SIGND +ASYNCDNS -SECHASH +IPV6 -DEBUG)

Nov 16 19:36:11 borg chronyd[12984]: Enabled HW timestamping on Eth3
Nov 16 19:36:11 borg chronyd[12984]: Frequency -14.251 +/- 0.610 ppm read from /var/lib/chrony/drift

Nov 16 19:36:11 borg chronyd[12984]: System clock TAI offset set to 37 seconds

2001:470:28:4a6::4 being my ntpd-host

I notice your Chrony changes PID (or do you have multiple instances running) - the one changing sources has a lower PID, an old instance not shutdown properly?

Meh...for some reason, chrony did indeed run with 2 instances. Ended one, killed the other one - problem solved. Thank you!

Kind regards,
Jimini
