Configure NTP Client (Fedora)2019/05/06
Configure NTP Client.
The settings of NTP Client on Fedora are mostly the same with Server's settings, so refer to NTPd Settings or Chrony Settings. For different settings from Server's one, Clients don't need to receive time synchronization requests from other computers, so it does not need to set access permission.
|||If you don't use NTP service daemon but use a command to sync time at once, use ntpdate like follows.|
dnf -y install ntpdate
# replace NTP server below to your timezone's one
6 May 19:57:13 ntpdate: adjust time server 22.214.171.124 offset 0.006155 sec
# run once always when System starts
systemctl enable ntpdate
