Hi,

I have got problems with the ntp daemon.

It is enabled in systemd but is not started on boot.

# systemctl status ntpd
● ntpd.service – Network Time Service
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
Active: inactive (dead)

Starting manually works
# systemctl start ntpd
# systemctl status ntpd
● ntpd.service – Network Time Service
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
Active: active (running) since Fri 2016-07-29 10:29:45 CEST; 3s ago
Process: 2291 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/ntpd -u ntp:ntp $OPTIONS

I see nothing ntpd related /var/log/messages or journactl during the boot phase. Seems like no attempt is made to start it at all.

Is there something that need to be done besides enabling it with systemctl?

Regards
