NTP problem

Hello folks,

I have RHEL 4.1 installed on a DL385 Opteron server and I'm having a problem with NTP.

The ntpserver is a win2k machine which I've heard can cause problems but I have no other problems with my RHEL machines getting the correct time from it.

The DL385 will talk to the ntpserver and get the correct time, but it will gradually start going forward too fast, until after about 1/2 an hour the DL385 will be about 5 minutes into the future.

My other Linux boxes (a mix of Opteron and Itanium) have no problems.

I have shaved /etc/ntp.conf down to just "server ip.of.ntp.server"

I have renamed /var/lib/ntp/drift and restarted ntpd but it's always the same. I've even tried copying the drift file from a good server.

I am getting this error in messages -
"Your time source seems to be instable or some driver is hogging interupts"

Does anyone have an idea about what might be causing this please ?

Nick .
