[chrony-users] include not working with chrony 3.1?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More chrony.tuxfamily.org/chrony-users Archives ]



recently I updated from chrony 3.0 to 3.1 (chrony-3.1-21.1.x86_64). I am using the include statement in the chrony config file.

After updating the statements in the included file are not included any more.


This is my /etc/chrony.conf:

driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift

makestep 62 -1



local stratum 7 orphan

maxdistance 6

logdir /var/log/chrony

log measurements statistics tracking rtc refclocks tempcomp

logbanner 100

logchange 0.1

refclock SHM 0 refid GPS precision 1e-1 offset 0.18 delay 0.2

refclock SHM 1 refid PPS precision 1e-9 delay 0.15

include /home/tester/ntp.include


This is /home/tester/ntp.include (Rights -rw-r--r--):

server iburst


chronyc sources lists (GPS is not connected at the moment):

210 Number of sources = 2

chronyc does not complain :

The server is used when I move the server statement from the include file to /etc/chrony.conf.


Is there any known bug with 3.1?

Are there any other known reasons why the include statement does not work as expected?


Best regards
