I have a small LAN that has no connection to the internet. It consists of two ubuntu servers clustered together providing NFS services to two IP cameras.
I need to synchronize the time on all the equipment. The Cameras support NTP so my plan was to run NTP on the server cluster.
Can I configure NTPD to just use the system time until this project gets funding to add a 3G/4G connection?
This is actually going to be harder than I thought. I'm running a heartbeat cluster with DRBD. I'm going to need to have my primary server provide NTP to the two IP cameras and the other server in the cluster. If my primary server fails I need the secondary server to take over the NTP time server.
What do you guys suggest I do here??
