UPDATE::Configuring NTP in VMware ITBM Standard Appliance (1.0.1)

Published: General vRealize-LogInsight
Hello All,
There is another way. If you follow the previous post there would be a problem . In ITBM standard appliance by default the following lines are on :
fudge stratum 10
So, when you check the time with ntpq –pn you would see that by default 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@:/root
$ ssh 
$ 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.
