system time automatically fowards in time and then comes back to normal
I am running Nagios 2.7-1 on Centos 5.0 32-bit hosted on Vmware ESX
4.0. The issue I am seeing on the server is sometimes nagios is
showing the below messages in /var/log/messages and as the system time
gets changed some false alarms gets generated. I searched it on the
google but I am not able to find the correct solution. I even posted
on the nagios forum and they asked me to see elsewhere why the server
shitfs so much before looking at nagios.

Earlier this server was syncing time through ntp daemon and below is
the ntp.conf file. Now I have set a cronjob which sync the time with
the ntp server every 5 minutes but still the problem persist.
