Recently I have kickstarted some servers that had their time off by a month in the bios. The time in the bios said it was a random time/date in May, while it was June.
This caused NTP not to work, because NTP doesn’t sync with such a high offset. How can I make sure that NTP syncs despite the offset, in this case a month, being too high?
For EL5 and EL6:
ntpdate as well.
It should be sufficient to enable them in your kickstart.
%post chkconfig ntpdate on chkconfig ntpd on
