for ntp server
ip= hostname=ABC_UDB01

NTP Configuration

for ntp server configuration:
choose one of ur server to be your primary NTP server i.e. then follow the following instructions:
1- backup current configuration file: cp /etc/ntp.conf ~ntp/ntp.conf.yymmdd.UID
2- Specify the servers you are interested on them to the configuration file"/etc/ntp.conf":
3- Restrict the type of access you allow these servers:
restrict mask notrust nomodify notrap
4- Restart the ntpd server:
/etc/init.d/ntpd restart
On the client side:
1- repeate step 1
2- repeate step 2 but change to map to your ntp server.
3- repeate step 3 and 4.
4- Synchronize your local time with the server(do it 3 times):
ntpdate -u
5- Determining if the NTP is synchronized properly
ntpq p
thats all folks.
