Hmm, not sure.  The problem really is with NTP that it doesn't sort
something like that out for itself.  We can't really expect any
networking system to go around restarting every server, nor would we
want it to, every time your IP changed.

It is a known problem with NTP, and I seem to recall that they were
trying to come up with a solution.  I just worked around it by running a
script after a PPP interface has gone up.  The system scripts are set up
to call something afterwards, but I forget the filename for certain.
All I had to do was put my NTP restart command into it.

I suppose I could do that, but no more often than it happens, I'll just see if the old fart can remember to just restart it when the logs start that stuff.


This script is run after an interface goes up, it notifies things that
want to be notified (NTP ought to be one of them), and you can customise
it yourself:  /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-post (though I don't
know what'll happen next time it gets updated by YUM).

I don't have a copy of what I did before, anymore, to check.

Cheers, Gene
