Fact

Novell NetWare 5.0

Symptom

Compaq Server (among others) timesync drifts because of NSS or IDE drivers

Fix

Engineering is working on a solution

As a workaround point to an external time source by typing: TIME SYNC TIME SOURCES=129.6.15.29:123;
  or some other time provider that is available

***Troubleshooting:***  
If you type time on your server - look at your watch. Let the server go for a minute.  Type time again on the server and see how much it has drifted.

If it has drifted more than 3-4 seconds please unload these nlms in this order

CDHFS.NSS
CD9660.NSS
MBNWSA.NSS
ZLSS.NSS
MBMMPRV.NSS

Then reload them in reverse order checking the time (for a minute) between MBNWSA and CD9660.NSS

If the time drifts between these two NLMs try not using your IDE drivers.
