In this post, we will see one of the common NTP issue and its solution.
I. Error Message
"NTP Syncing against LOCAL."
II. Meaning of this error message
NTP is sync'ing against LOCAL - means it is not able to sync from any of the external source server. The Undisciplined Local Clock should, generally, only be used when an ntpd must be able to serve time to others even when no real time sources are reachable.
Remove all references to the LOCAL peer and server from the ntp.conf configuration file.
