How to specify Network Time Protocol Server in Kickstart script?

We need to set NTP server for each host we install using kickstart script. However, we did not see a field that allow us to specify NTP server address. Any ideas?

If you have SAMBA running on the server, and have 'time server = yes" in the .conf file, then a simple line added to the script will do the trick

net time \\servername /set /y (substitute your real server name here)

This will sync all your windows clients to the time server every time they login.

Thank you very much for the help.

Currently we don't have samba server running. Is there any other ways, for instance, using NFS?

In your finish section of ks.cfg :
...cp /mnt/temp/scripts/ntp.conf /etc/ntp.conf ...
ensure as edcutis, ensure that NTP is enabled & the PC should sync on \init
