Hello,

I've been scouring the forums looking for a hint as to why the date on the CLI is set. I've come across a few posts:


and you tube suggestions:


Do provide solutions but via startup scripts or changing DST settings in etc.

But why does it just not work via the GUI? I can click Apply on the below and the time and date will be fixed but why doesn't the router automatically do this a boot time? How to permanently set it using UI settings? The NTP servers I have listed below are on the internal LAN. They work and time is synced correctly on other internal devices on my network without issue.

Do your local NTP servers have GPS? Since you intercept NTP at the router they wouldn’t be able to get to an external time source. Or how do they connect to the router (wired or wireless)? Maybe WiFi isn’t fully ready when the router tries to sync time on the LAN.

Also worth noting since we’re discussing accurate time that your timezone settings for EST are reversed and it’s the 1st Sunday in November.

The NTP servers do not have GPS. The NTP servers are VM's running FreeIPA that also act as NTP servers. The IP's are Cluster / VIP. These IPA VM's in turn sync to pool.ntp.org and act as internal time servers for my home devices. Recommended practice.

That was my attempt at trying various options to see what works. The router is wired directly to my local LAN where I run OSPF to provide automatic routing for multiple VLAN's. OSPF works just fine here, so does OpenVPN. I can ping the VLAN's just fine. However, OpenVPN only works as long as the time is right. So here we are.

If NTP does try to set the time before any of the network ports are up then how to force it to retry later on?

The DST change was me pulling at straws at that point. The video link suggested that due to a bug that 'might' work. Of course, it didn't really work. Here are my current settings:

At the moment when I apply the settings this is what pops up in the logs:

So while writing this, I decided to enable the local NTP server. The idea is that when the router starts, even though the network isn't there yet, the service should be able to hang around for a while. Might not if the time difference is too great but let's see.

Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# ps|grep ntp
3758 admin     1436 S    /usr/sbin/ntp -t -S /sbin/ntpd_synced -p 192.168.0.46 -p 192.168.0.51 -l -I br0
4117 admin     1428 R    grep ntp
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root#
1602957144527.png


Rebooted the router. And sure enough, the NTPD daemon simply fails to start:

Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# ps|grep ntp
2146 admin     1428 S    grep ntp
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root#
So whatever is causing sync issues is really impacting services from starting up. Hence the problem, I think. And is where I'm at right now.

I have some flexibility here as I'm building out the router to replace my existing one.

Thx,

So what happens if you run ntp directly?
Code:
/usr/sbin/ntp -d -n -t -S /sbin/ntpd_synced -p 192.168.0.46 -p 192.168.0.51
This command shouldn’t daemonize, so you can see the results.

Also how is DNS setup in your network? Where does the router point to for WAN DNS?

There is no WAN IP on this device yet. Just building it out so it is only locally facing, not web facing. The goal is to plug it in as the WAN facing router in the future. Just building it out. So all local IP's for now.

What side of the Asus firewall are the NTP and DNS servers? You have NAT enabled, so are your 192.168.0 subnet servers considered LAN or WAN to the Asus?

I also might theorize that the Network Monitoring options might be a bad idea right now, depending how this is setup during the build out. Same for the redirect notice option.

Or is the Asus plugged in LAN-to-LAN? What’s the Asus routing table look like?

NTP is outside the Asus router's F/W. 192.168.0.X is considered LAN to the Asus. In other words, there is no cable in the WAN port right now. Only one ethernet port is connected right now. And that port is on the 192.168.0.X VLAN.

As for the monitoring, it's mostly all default options if it's enabled. Which specific monitoring options are you thinking I should try to disable? Can you clarify on more on the redirect notice option?

Asus is LAN-to-LAN .

For now, I put in a workaround to ensure the NTP daemon starts up. Created the script /jffs/scripts/init-start to see if NTPD would start before the network or other services come up given this comment:

----------
https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin.ng/wiki/User-scripts
init-start
Called right after JFFS got mounted, and before any of the services get started. This is the earliest part of the boot process where you can insert something.Then NTP should not load.
----------

Shell script:

Code:
[email protected]:/jffs/scripts# cat /jffs/scripts/init-start
#!/bin/sh
NTP0=$(nvram show 2>/dev/null | awk -F'=' '/ntp_server0/{ print $2 }')
NTP1=$(nvram show 2>/dev/null | awk -F'=' '/ntp_server1/{ print $2 }')
PSV=$(ps|grep -Ei "ntpd_[s]ynced"|wc -l)

echo "Using the following NTP servers: NTP0 ($NTP0) and NTP1 ($NTP1).  Number of running NTP servers right now is $PSV";

if [[ $NTP0 != "" && $NTP1 != "" && $PSV == 0 ]]; then
        /usr/sbin/ntp -d -n -t -S /sbin/ntpd_synced -p $NTP0 -p $NTP1 &
        if $? == 0; then
                echo "SUCCESS: Started the NTPD server."
        else
                echo "FAILED to start the NTPD server.  Non 0 exit code detected."
        fi
else
        echo "ERROR:  Either NTP0($NTP0) or NTP1($NTP1) was empty.  Or NTPD was already started.  No action taken.";
fi

Thinking the UI settings are not starting NTPD up then. Not sure where to look from here to find startup configs or logs that could give me more clues.

If your WAN port was configured, I don’t think this would be an issue. Normally ntpd will get started after the WAN comes up, because it assumes it needs to talk to a public NTP server.

The only thing that remains now is that the time is off by 1 hour. Hoping I could verify the locale / zone is set and applied correctly.

The NVRAM settings appear correct however are still off.

Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# nvram show|grep zone
size: 52633 bytes (12903 left)
time_zone_dst=1
time_zone_x=EST5DST,M11.1.0/1,M3.2.0/1
time_zone_dstoff=M11.1.0/1,M3.2.0/1
time_zone=EST5DST

You still have the start and end dates reversed. Mine:
Code:
time_zone=EST5DST
time_zone_dst=1
time_zone_dstoff=M3.2.0/2,M11.1.0/2
time_zone_x=EST5DST,M3.2.0/2,M11.1.0/2

That's fine now. Thank you. However, since I installed Entware, time is now in UTC and I can't find a way to change it to EST.

Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# nvram show|grep zone
time_zone_dst=1
time_zone_x=EST5DST,M3.2.0/1,M11.1.0/1
time_zone_dstoff=M3.2.0/1,M11.1.0/1

Common solution is to add a TZ statement to each startup script in /opt/etc/init.d:
Code:
export TZ=$(cat /etc/TZ)
Or do you mean the time in the shell? What else did you install from entware?

Yes, correct. Referring to the time in the shell / cli above.

How many packages? Let's just say I'm giving this tiny machine a workout. I'll probably toss in a few more in time. ;)

Perhaps locale is the one stirring things up but ran out of time to dig deeper.
