Purpose

Guys,

There is another way. If you follow the previous post there would be a problem J . In ITBM standard appliance by default the following lines are on :

Server 127.0.0.1 
fudge  127.0.0.1 stratum 10

so when you check the time with ntpq –pn you would see that by default 127.0.0.1 is set up as default time server. Since I could not use any local editor to edit the file and all the three appliance vCAC, Identity and ITBM standard follows the same NTP configuration and server, did the following:

  1.  Log in to the vCAC appliance console (you can use putty as well)

  2. Made the required changes to the /etc/ntp.conf file in vCAC appliance ( you get nice VIM editor there – VI editor with color code )

$ scp /etc/ntp.conf root@<itbm appliance="" ip="">:/root
$ ssh <itbm appliance="" ip="">
$ cp /etc/ntp.conf /etc/ntp.conf.orig
$ mv /root/ntp.conf /etc/ntp.conf
$ chmod 640 /etc/ntp.conf
$ chown root:ntp /etc/ntp.conf
$ service ntp restart
$ ntpq –pn

At this time if you see time drift is too high, you can force sync

$ service ntp stop
$ ntpd –gq
$ service ntp start

Hope this helps.
