Could someone Please clarify me here:
Is ntpdate command a part of ntpd, i mean does ntpdate command a dependent on ntpd? and can ntpdate be run in absence of ntpd service.
After I installed ntpd via yum I run the command systemctl enable ntpd.service and rebooted the computer. After I got the shell prompt I run systemctl -a | grep ntp and I got ntpd.service loaded inactive dead. If I start it manually using systemctl start ntpd.service it works fine. Why is that? How can I ensure the ntpd.service will be up and running after reboot?
