Configure NTP on the LOC 2700

It’s very important that the time between the WCS and LOC servers are within 15 minutes, otherwise you’ll get some errors.
The best solution is to have one NTP server at your network.

At the 2700 server login.
Stop the location service :
/etc/rc.d/init.d/locserverd stop

Add the NTP server at /etc/ntp.conf
vi /etc/ntp.conf
You can scroll down and add some text with the ‘i’
Add : server at the General configuration section.
use :wq! to write the file and quit vi.

To turn on the config checker for making sure that things are configured correctly :
chkconfig ntpd on

Start the network :
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start

Restart the ntpd :
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd restart

Initially seed the NTP process with the time :
ntpupdate -u

And finally start the location service again :
/etc/rc.d/init.d/locserverd start
