With the integration of your server to the Leaseweb network infrastructure, you may need to change the "NTP server".

If you were using at least one the the following legacy iWeb's NTP servers, you will need to modify the NTP server of Leaseweb or another one of your choice.

ntp.iweb.com
ntp01.co.iweb.com
ntp01.ne.iweb.com
ntp01.cl.iweb.com

How to Modify the NTP Server

Ubuntu/Debian

On Ubuntu/Debian, there can be two services to configure the NTP server. Timesyncd or NTPd.

To validate if you are using NTPd use the following command.

NTPd
systemctl status ntpd.service

If the service is running, continue with the NTPd configuration.

Otherwise, go to the Timesyncd section.


Configuration with NTPd

To modify the configurations on Ubuntu or Debian follow these steps:

  1. Edit the "ntp.conf" file.

    sudo nano /etc/ntp.conf
  2. Delete any line with the iWeb server and replace them with the following server.

    server ntp.leaseweb.com
  3. Restart the NTPd service.

    systemctl restart ntpd.service
  4. Verify the synchronization with the server.

    ntpq -np


Configuration with timesyncd 

To modify the NTP server on Ubuntu or Debian follow these steps:

  1. Edit the "timesyncd.conf" file.

    sudo nano /etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf
  2. Replace the text to look like this:

    [Time]
    NTP=ntp.leaseweb.com
    FallbackNTP=pool.ntp.org
  3. Restart the timesyncd service.

    systemctl status systemd-timesyncd
  4. Verify if the modification is applied.

    systemctl status systemd-timesyncd

    You should see a line similar to the one below.

    Status: "Initial synchronization to time server 23.106.249.200:123 (ntp.leaseweb.com)."

Redhat Base

Distribution Supported:

  1. Edit the "chrony.conf" file.

    sudo nano /etc/chrony.conf
  2. Find the line with the legacy iWeb's NTP server and replace it with the following line.

    server ntp.leaseweb.com iburst
  3. Restart the chronyd service.

    systemctl start chronyd
  4. Verify if the modification is applied.

    Set-ItemProperty . NtpServer "ntp.leaseweb.com"
    Pop-Location
    Stop-Service w32time
    Start-Service w32time
    Set-TimeZone -name "Eastern Standard Time"
  2. Verify if the modification is applied.

    esxcli system ntp set -s=ntp.leaseweb.com
  3. Start the ntpd service

    esxcli system ntp set -e=yes
