SRX NTP Process Problem

    Posted 08-03-2022 18:14
    I have a SRX340 running 22.2R1.9 with a NTP problem where it seems like the xntpd process is dead. When I change the configuration to add a new NTP server, the new NTP server does not show up in show ntp associations. When I issue the command - restart ntpd-server, I get the following output:

    user@gw> restart ntpd-service
    error: pid in file //var/run/xntpd.pid unreasonably small (0)
    error: Network time process is not running
    error: Network time process was not restarted

    The command show ntp associations shows my first NTP server but the not the second one.

    Here is the system ntp configuration:

    ntp {

    Here is the ps command from a shell showing the process:

    root 2045 0.0 0.1 19092 6080 ?? S 22Jul22 1:41.58 /usr/sbin/xntpd -j -N -g (ntpd)

    Any suggestions?
