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:
Log in to the vCAC appliance console (you can use putty as well)
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 </itbm></itbm>
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.
