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?
I'm using the ntp package in debian squeeze and the ntpd process is listening on hundreds of rfc1918 addresses that are not configured on the server.
