ntp has been replaced with systemd-timesyncd in OMV3. Need to rethink this.


mamra (reporter)

"systemd-timesyncd is a daemon that has been added for synchronizing the system clock across the network. It implements an SNTP client. In contrast to NTP implementations such as chrony or the NTP reference server this only implements a client side, and does not bother with the full NTP complexity, focusing only on querying time from one remote server and synchronizing the local clock to it. Unless you intend to serve NTP to networked clients or want to connect to local hardware clocks this simple NTP client should be more than appropriate for most installations. The daemon runs with minimal privileges, and has been hooked up with networkd to only operate when network connectivity is available."

samba needs ntpd...

I know that, so there are two options:

1. Drop the 'advertise as a time server to windows clients' feature for SMB
2. Switch back to NTP
