Change the NTP Server

To change or add external NTP servers on a Service Provider, perform the following steps:

  1. Edit the /etc/ntp.conf file.
  2. Find the following line in the file:

    #You do need to talk to an NTP server or two (or three).
  3. On subsequent lines following this line, for each NTP server, add a unique line of the following form:

    server name
    • If you are changing the existing NTP server, replace the existing name.
    • If you are adding another NTP server, add a new line that specifies the name of the additional NTP server.
  4. Restart the NTP server using the following command:

    sudo /etc/init.d/ntp restart
