#7024 freeipa depends on ntp
Closed: fixed 3 years ago Opened 4 years ago by pvoborni.

Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Fedora): Bug 1456863

Description of problem:

In Fedora we have two NTP implementation: ntp and chrony. Currently, chrony is
preferred for both NTP clients and servers. freeipa includes support for ntp in
the ipa-{server,client}-install scripts and installs ntp as a dependency. There
is no support for chrony.

If there is interest I can try to implement the support in the scripts.

However, as I understand it, the long-term goal in freeipa is to remove all
NTP-specific configuration and rely on other tools for that. If it removes the
dependency on ntp, that will work too.

For a freeipa client installation, systemd-timesyncd should be enough as well since this is part of all newer distros that has systemd.
