Leap Second


Badge +2
This is probably in the wrong Forum but I couldn't see a more appropriate one to use.
Has Nutanix issues a staement in relation to the Leap Second adjustment that's occuring on June 30th and whether it's likely to cause any problems?
Thanks

Hi SeanM,

NTPD in our platform doesn't use the -x flag which is what makes NTP susceptible to leap second. Therefore you don't have to patch or make any changes to the CVM.

We have documented that we not susceptible in KB 2229: https://portal.nutanix.com/#page/kbs/details?targetId=kA060000000TSUmCAO
