Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 SP1 (OES11SP1)
Domain Services for Windows


The ntpd services gets killed every 30 minutes on DSfW server with Windows 7
workstations joined to the domain.

Crash is due to flag NTPD_RUN_CHROOTED="yes" set in /etc/sysconfig/ntp file. 
After changing the setting to NTPD_RUN_CHROOTED="no" the ntpd service runs fine without any crash


Resolved in April 2013 Maintenance Patch

Workaround:  in the /etc/sysconfig/ntp file set NTPD_RUN_CHROOTED="no"
