Reset/Update NTP Server

There was an older machine on the network, with an outdated local NTP configuration, and the time was off by a couple minutes. This post shows how to perform a quick update and force sync. Use at your own risk for time sensitive applications.

1. Update the NTP client configuration.

service ntpd stop
vi /etc/ntp.conf
 Find Line
server 192.168.x.x

Change to new server
Save and quit.
 service ntpd start

2.  Force synchronization
 date ; service ntpd stop ; ntpdate ; service ntpd start ; date

In one fell swoop it will give you the current time, stop the service, force an update, start the service and give you the updated time.
