Ntp not updating clock

The hardware clock is physically present and continues to run from battery power even if the system is not plugged into a power source, this is how the time stays in place when there is no power available.As the Linux system boots up it will read time from the hardware clock, this initial time is then passed to the system clock.In this version chronyd is installed by default, however we will still cover the older ntpd for completeness as this is still widely used.Here we are concerned with configuring NTP clients rather than an NTP server.As a workaround, add the command It should already be updating the time.

So that is quite similar to the other issue I (and many others) have with Raspberry Pi3 when operated over a Wi-Fi internal interface.In Cent OS 7 by default chronyd will update the hardware clock with NTP every 11 minutes, in previous versions of the OS this was only done at shutdown/reboot.This configuration is defined by ‘rtcsync’ in /etc/The hwclock command can also be used to display the current time of the hardware clock as shown below.However, you can try to check your Internet connection (e.g.There are many different services such as Kerberos that depend on the time of a Linux system being accurate in order to function correctly.
