Default NTP Setup

Feature state



A Yast pane should prompt for NTP set up, which should be configured by default, but of course can also be disabled there.


Documentation impact

Installation guide needs to be updated.

[0123].opensuse.pool.ntp.org mentioned for openSUSE.

If you want me to document something for SLE11, please set the Doc Status accordingly.

Federico, NTP setup is already possible. Do you want it in a more prominent place? Also I see a missing way for the product to pre-define the value, correct?

icons/user_comment.png F. L. wrote: (9 years ago)

right. I want to see it pre-enabled by default againt a dedicated suse.pool.ntp.org / time.novell.com server (separate feature for that).

We are lagging a bit behind Win and Mac where the vendos provide their own time source, and we need to catch up there.

We will need not only to enable NTP during installation, but display this information in the installation proposal (and possibly time zone dialog) as well.

this is proposal how to show the info in current time zone dialog. It is probably bad that status is part of the frame label, but I didn't want to take more space from the whole dialog by adding new line...

for openSUSE it's 0.opensuse.pool.ntp.org 1.opensuse.pool.ntp.org 2.opensuse.pool.ntp.org 3.opensuse.pool.ntp.org, for SLE there is no NTP server. time.novell.com can not be used, IS&T does not provide that level of service.

Alpha2 solution is working, to solve remaining issues there is a Bug #422128.

Just to throw a spanner in the works - why don't we use geo-ip location to pre-fill the timezone. I know this requires a working ip, but just a suggestion.
