Description of problem:
When ipa-server-install or ipa-replica-install or ipa-client-install is run, it changes ntp.conf and add Red Hat NTP pool servers & remove existing servers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It will change existing values of /etc/ntp.conf
It should by default run as no ntp or should not change the value of existing servers, Just add below required parameter in ntp.conf
The change that the ipa-server-install forces is to point towards redhat's NTP servers, but that is a "default out of the box configuration" any way on any RHEL box. Why force that change on that manage their own NTP? And those that don't manage their own NTP, well they would already be pointing to RHEL NTP pool.
Is the -N/--no-ntp flag to ipa-server-install not adequate?

The ticket was triaged by the upstream and scheduled to later milestone. It is thus unlikely that the request will be finished in near future or in RHEL-6.x release. I am moving this Bugzilla to RHEL-7 product to narrow the expectations.
