timedatectl reports "NTP synchronized: yes" after "set-ntp off"
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:13:43 EDT
Description of problem:
When using systemd-timesyncd, timedatectl still claims that the clock is synchronized via NTP after switching NTP off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl disable timedatex
2. systemctl stop timedatex
3. timedatectl set-ntp on
4. Wait until you see "NTP synchronized: yes"
5. timedatectl set-ntp off
timedatectl keeps showing "NTP synchronized: yes".
"NTP synchronized: no".
The same happens when breaking the timesyncd configuration, maybe like this
# echo NTP=foo.bar.blargl >/etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf.d/50-broken.conf
# systemctl restart systemd-timesyncd
The clock is not really synchronized anymore, but timedatectl pretends that it is.
Setting the time manually via 'timedatectl' or 'date' resets the state to "NTP synchronized: no".
