Need help enabling NTP on RedHat servers...

I have five RedHat 4ES servers and three RedHat 3AS servers.  The problem I have is that I need to configure them for NTP.  Not being familiar with Linux prompts the question.

Plese let me know which config files to edit and/or changes to make so that I can point all eight of these servers to our INTERNAL time servers (we will call them TIMESRV1 and TIMESRV2).

Thank you!

Edit the:

/etc/ntp.conf

file and ensure that you have the entries:

server TIMESRV1
server TIMESRV2

in the file.

Then ensure that ntpd is running:

/etc/init.d/ntpd start

The following may be of interest.

/etc/init.d/ntpd status
/etc/init.d/ntpd restart
