To confirm NTP settings, run the following commands in Expert mode:
[Expert@HostName]# cat /etc/sysconfig/ntp
Sample of output:
[Expert@HostName]# cpd_sched_config print | grep -A 5 'NtpPoll'
[Expert@HostName]# watch -d -n 1 'ps aux | grep ntp | grep -v grep | grep -v watch'
This will show the server(s), interval and MD5_SECRET that you have set for use with NTP.
The last watch command will monitor ps. This is done, as the ntp process only comes up periodically when polling the server, and does not run continuously.
