  • Message-id: <feature-303520-23@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Feature changed by: Johan Kotze (gogga)
Feature #303520, revision 23
Title: Default NTP Setup

openSUSE-11.1: Done
Priority
Requester: Mandatory
Projectmanager: Mandatory

Requested by: Federico Lucifredi (flucifredi)

Description:
A Yast pane should prompt for NTP set up, which should be configured by
default, but of course can also be disabled there.

Relations:
- suse.pool.ntp.org (feature/id: 302915)
- Depens on (feature/id: 303521)

Documentation Impact:
Installation guide needs to be updated.
[0123].opensuse.pool.ntp.org mentioned for openSUSE.
If you want me to document something for SLE11, please set the Doc
Status accordingly.

Discussion:

Federico, NTP setup is already possible. Do you want it in a more
prominent place? Also I see a missing way for the product to pre-define
the value, correct?

#2: Federico Lucifredi (flucifredi) (2008-06-23 21:03:12) (reply to
#1)
right. I want to see it pre-enabled by default againt a dedicated suse.pool.
ntp.org / time.novell.com server (separate feature for that).
We are lagging a bit behind Win and Mac where the vendos provide their
own time source, and we need to catch up there.

#3: Jiri Srain (jsrain) (2008-07-07 12:18:32)
We will need not only to enable NTP during installation, but display
this information in the installation proposal (and possibly time zone
dialog) as well.

#6: Jiří­ Suchomel (jsuchome) (2008-08-12 13:27:44) (reply to #3)
OK, this
(http://w3.suse.de/~jsuchome/screenshots/yast2-timezone-ntp-status.png) is
proposal how to show the info in current time zone dialog. It is
probably bad that status is part of the frame label, but I didn't want
to take more space from the whole dialog by adding new line...

#4: Stephan Kulow (coolo) (2008-07-31 16:15:46)
for openSUSE it's 0.opensuse.pool.ntp.org 1.opensuse.pool.ntp.org 2.
opensuse.pool.ntp.org 3.opensuse.pool.ntp.org, for SLE there is no NTP
server. time.novell.com can not be used, IS&T does not provide that
level of service.

#7: Jiří­ Suchomel (jsuchome) (2008-09-02 16:05:00)
Alpha2 solution is working, to solve remaining issues there is a bug
422128.

+ #8: Johan Kotze (gogga) (2009-04-13 14:58:56)
+ Just to throw a spanner in the works - why don't we use geo-ip location
+ to pre-fill the timezone. I know this requires a working ip, but just a
+ suggestion.
