Run Time drift in NUTANIX cluster

To sync the time backwards, do the following.

  1. Verify that the NTP servers are set correctly.
  2. Activate the time drift script by using the following command.

$ allssh ‘(/usr/bin/crontab -l && echo “*/5 * * * * bash -lc /home/nutanix/serviceability/bin/fix_time_drift”) | /usr/bin/crontab -‘

The script begins to gradually synchronize the time backwards. Lab tests show that time is synchronized backwards ,until the clock is completely in synchronization with the external time source.

  1. Display the progress of the time synchronization by using the following command.


$ allssh grep offset ~/data/logs/genesis.out


  1. Turn off the time synchronization script after the time synchronization is complete by using the following command.


$ allssh “(/usr/bin/crontab -l | sed ‘/fix_time_drift/d’ | /usr/bin/crontab -)”
