Customer recently completed a migration from OES 2 SP3 to OES 2015 SP1 they are dealing with older hardware, and in some cases insufficient RAM. However; one of the items that has been troubling as of late, has been when attempting to view/check the status of the NTP service, "rcntp status" basically the response comes back nothing to do, or no response. Something to that effect, I just went through the bulk of their servers today, and forgot to actually get the error.
That said, if you go into YAST and configure ntp client, making sure that under the Security Settings the check box for Run NTP Daemon in Chroot jail is selected, that seems to bring the correct response from the "rcntp status" command.
I was just wondering if anyone else has seen this behavior, or knows if it might still be an issue in OES 2018 SP2 or SLES 12 SP5?
