Dave Brunkow asked:
How can it be synchronized but not enabled? Redhat 7.4
Date and time are right. ntpq -p shows it’s connected to a remote ntp server. Systemctl status ntp shows its enabled. Nothing in /var/log/messages indicates any errors. Is this some normal state that I just don’t understand?
timedatectl Local time: Thu 2020-10-01 14:24:30 UTC Universal time: Thu 2020-10-01 14:24:30 UTC RTC time: Thu 2020-10-01 14:24:30 Time zone: UTC (UTC, +0000) NTP enabled: no NTP synchronized: yes
● ntpd.service - Network Time Service Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service; enabled;
timedatectl command reports that NTP is in use when either
systemd-timesyncd is enabled and running. Both of these are lightweight NTP clients suitable for most servers and workstations. It does not recognize the
ntpd service, which is designed to be both an NTP client and server, and now that we have dedicated NTP client software, is no longer favored for systems that don’t need to serve NTP to other systems or use specialized hardware such as GPS to obtain the time.
