Support for NTP signing with Samba4 as an Active Directory (AD) Domain Controller (DC).
Allow time synchronization of clients and Domain Controller.
Result (if any):
Created attachment 594239 [details]
Proposed spec file for NTP 4.2.6p5
Description of problem:
NTP should be rebased to version >= 4.2.6 to support signed responses required by AD DC functionality (samba4).
Now that samba4 is approaching release (and Rawhide package seems to already take RHEL6 into consideration) and BIND has been rebased to 9.8 (minimum required version to support DLZ with samba4) this seems the last step to a future workable Technology Preview of Samba4 under RHEL6.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Check docs/configuration: no
Steps to Reproduce:
No support available for signed responses.
Signed responses supported.
