To make sure the time on the Teradata Viewpoint server is always accurate, configure NTP time synchronization. This is especially important if setting up a Teradata Viewpoint cluster, because the time on the servers needs to be synchronized.

This setup assumes that a time server is available on the LAN. If no time server is available, time is synchronized only among the Teradata Viewpoint servers in a cluster and not a master time source.

Use the following procedure for each Teradata Viewpoint server.

  1. Enable the NTP service by typing chkconfig ntp on.
  2. If there is a time server:
    1. Open and edit /etc/ntp.conf.
    2. Add the following line to the end of the file, where host is the host name of the time server:
      server host
  3. If Teradata Viewpoint is configured in a cluster:
    1. Open and edit /etc/ntp.conf.
    2. Add the following line to the end of the file for each Teradata Viewpoint server in the cluster, excluding the current host, where address is the IP address of another Teradata Viewpoint server:
      peer address
  4. Start the NTP service by typing /etc/init.d/ntp start.
