Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1273331
[Docs] [Install] Engine best practices document should include the proper date/time configuration
Last modified: 2016-02-10 13:56:28 EST
Description of problem:
Date/time configuration should be mentioned in the engine best practices document.
For example, while engine time is few hours late/early, it could result in accounts cannot access with 'account has expired' issues as reported in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1273297
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Do you mean users should set up NTP on the Manager to avoid the issue you have described? I see a workaround has been provided in BZ#1171474:
Work around is to configure ntpd service to run on boot
"chkconfig ntpd on"
and to set ntp config file for correct ntp server
Is this what you are after?
Yes, this is what I mean.
Added an additional step to the Configuring the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager section in the Installation Guide:
If you intend to link your Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment with a directory server, configure the date and time to synchronize with the system clock used by the directory server to avoid unexpected account expiry issues. See <ulink url="https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Deployment_Guide/sect-Date_and_Time_Configuration-Command_Line_Configuration-Network_Time_Protocol.html">Red Hat Enterprise Linux Deployment Guide, Configure NTP</ulink> for more information.
Could you confirm if the note is correct?
Reviewed and merged. Looks good to me.
Moving to VERIFIED.
