Overview

The NTP module installs, configures, and manages NTP.

Module Description

The NTP module handles installing and configuring NTP across a range of operating systems and distributions.

Setup

What NTP affects

  • /etc/ntp.conf

Basics

Getting started with this module is as simple as specifying the following in your manifest:

class { 'ntp': }

If you would like to customize your /etc/ntp.conf a bit, here is a brief example showing how you can specify specific time servers:

class { 'ntp': servers => ['0.centos.pool.ntp.org', '1.centos.pool.ntp.org', '2.centos.pool.ntp.org'] }

Usage

The following parameters are available in the NTP module:

  • preferred_servers
  • servers

Limitations

This module has been built and tested against Puppet 3.0 and higher.

The module has been tested on:

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux 6
  • CentOS 6
  • Ubuntu 12.04

Testing on other platforms has been light and cannot be guaranteed.
