Description Moritz Muehlenhoff univentionstaff 2014-05-19 14:33:19 CEST
The login on a UCC client joined against a heavily time-skewed DC master failed.

The time should normally be synched, but rdate is missing at least in the thin client image:

if [ -x /usr/bin/rdate ]; then
        echo -n "Sync time "
        /usr/bin/rdate $DCNAME >/dev/null 2>&1
        echo -e "\033[60Gdone"

I've added a dependency in univention-ucc-join. 

For the QA: The system time on the UCC system should be identical to the time on the DC master.

Verified: Dependency added, time is set correctly while joining. Tested with thinclient and desktop image.
