Configure NTP for Locationserver (2)

In a previous post you could see how the linux machine was configured with ntp. You had to stop and restart some things.

There is an easier way :
Login at the Location server and just run the setup.
Everything that’s already okay, you don’t have to configure. You can run setup everytime you want. After changing some parameters a reboot is recommended.

[root@Loc2700 root]# cd /opt/locserver/
[root@Loc2700 locserver]# cd setup/
[root@Loc2700 setup]# ./
