An NTP daemon is used for time synchronization, either on a local system as a client, or on remote systems as a server.

The debops.ntp Ansible role supports multiple NTP servers, and is container-aware so that an NTP server won't be installed inside containers.

The role is also used to configure the system timezone using the tzdata package.


This role requires at least Ansible v2.0.0. To install it, run:

user@host:~$ ansible-galaxy install debops.ntp
