Time client setup

  1. Immediate synchronization with e.g.:
    /usr/sbin/ntpdate de.pool.ntp.org
    
  2. Adapt /etc/ntp.conf as suggested in that file:
    server timeserver1.gsi.de # GSI only !
    server de.pool.ntp.org
    #
    driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift
    
    (Under construction)The dhclient (/sbin/dhclient-script) seems to change the server entries, why this???
  3. Start the daemon once:
    /sbin/service ntpd start
    
    and prepare it for automatic startup:
    /sbin/chkconfig ntpd on
