I have a small network with a dialup connection to the internet. When
the server is online to collect mail, etc I use ntpdate to synchronise
it with a local timeserver.
The windows machines on the network set their time using the timeserver
in Samba with a "net time ..." bat file. This works well.
I would like to synchronise the linux machines using the samba time
server but have been unable to work out how to do it? Setting up an ntp
daemon seems a bit over the top when there is a perfectly good Samba
timeserver already running.
How can I access the Samba timeserver to set the time on a linux machine?
