Subject: Time reset on MEDM 
Yoichi, Alberto

I noticed the MEDM screen time was about 7 minutes ahead of the right time. The time on MEDM is read on channel C0:TIM-PACIFIC_STRING which takes it from the C1VCU-EPICS computer. Yoichi found that that computer did not have the right time because one of the startup scripts, ntpd, which are contained in the directory /etc/init.d/ for some reason did not start. So restring it by typing ./ntpd start updated the time on that computer and fixed the problem.
