Fixed In Version: python-rdomanager-oscplugin-0.0.9-1.el7ost
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The "--ntp-server" option was not provided for some HA Overcloud deployments. This caused the clock on Controller nodes to drift, which caused problems in Keystone. This fix sets the "--ntp-server" option to mandatory for deployments with multiple Controller nodes. Clocks on Controller nodes are now synchronized.

Comment 3 Marek Aufart 2015-08-20 04:40:16 EDT
Patch is for review. Parameter --ntp-server is required for deployments with more than one controller node now.

It might break some test scripts which does not count with this requirement.
