Description of Problem:
In all current versions of timeconfig I am aware of.
Timeconfig should drop the name or ip of each upstream timeserver in
/etc/ntp/step-tickers so the clock can be updated at boot time.
This should also hold true during firstboot, and possibly even when an ntp
server address is passed to the machine via a dhcp server.
timeconfig only sets timezones....
Yeah, you must have meant dateconfig instead of timeconfig.
Yesterday I renamed dateconfig to redhat-config-date, but that component isn't
listed in the component list yet. Anyway, I recently added /etc/step-ticker
awareness to dateconfig, so things should work now. Thanks for your report.
