PRVF-5507 : NTP daemon or service is not running on any node but NTP configuration file exists on the following node(s): node1,node2  – Cause:  The configuration file was found on at least one node though no NTP daemon or service was running.


While installation of cluster, ntpd is useful to synchronize the time with the cluster


If it is non production system, then we can rely on CTSS cluster service to synchronize the time with cluster. Hence to overcome this error, as workaround – ntpd can be disable unless it is a critical system. Otherwise ntpd needs to be configured

[root@x3dbzx69 u01]# service ntpd stop
Shutting down ntpd:                                        [FAILED]
[root@x3dbzx69 u01]# chkconfig ntpd off
[root@x3dbzx69 u01]# mv /etc/ntp /etc/ntp.bkp
[root@x3dbzx69 u01]# mv /etc/ntp.conf /etc/ntp.conf.bkp
