UPDATE::Configuring NTP in VMware ITBM Standard Appliance (1.0.1)

Guys,
There is another way. If you
follow the previous post there would be a problem J
. In ITBM standard appliance by default the following lines are on :
Server 127.0.0.1
fudge  127.0.0.1 stratum 10
so when you check the time with
ntpq –pn you would see that by default 127.0.0.1 is set up as default time
server. Since I could not use any local editor to edit the file and all the
three appliance vCAC, Identity and ITBM standard follows the same NTP
configuration and server, did the following:
1.      
Log in to the vCAC
appliance console (you can use putty as well)
2.      
Made the required
changes to the /etc/ntp.conf file in vCAC appliance ( you get nice VIM editor
there – VI editor with color code J )
3.      
$ scp /etc/ntp.conf
root@<ITBM Appliance IP>:/root
4.      
$ ssh <ITBM
Appliance IP>
5.      
$ cp /etc/ntp.conf
/etc/ntp.conf.orig
6.      
$ mv
/root/ntp.conf  /etc/ntp.conf
7.      
$ chmod 640
/etc/ntp.conf
8.      
$ chown root:ntp
/etc/ntp.conf
9.      
$ service ntp
restart
10.  
$ ntpq –pn
At this time if you see time
drift is too high, you can force sync
1.      
$ service ntp stop
2.      
$ ntpd –gq
3.      
$ service ntp start

Hope this helps J

    Any ideas on why I am still getting General SSO failure. Invalid host, port or tenant. Even when I have all the credentials correct and have also set the time server.
