Hi Experts,

I have a question - Is it possible to configure a Server both as a NTP Server and Client ?

My scenario is - I have 10 servers running Gentoo. I want to sync one of the servers to the Internet ntp server and then want this machine to act as a NTP Server for the rest of the 9 machines. So, Machine X would act as an NTP CLIENT to the Internet NTP Server and act as NTP SERVER for the rest of the 9 machines.

Appreciate all your help in advance.

Thanks.

hi,
yes, this should be working. Just configure the server (ntpd) and client (ntp-client) according to the wiki [1]. I guess, this is the most common use case, since real time server hardware is not unexpensive.

ntpd is a ntp client by itself, wouldn't make sense any other way.
