cdist-type__networktime - Generic time synchronization type
This type is intended to be a simple abstraction over the various backends and programs available for network time synchronization. This type only takes a list of peers to synchronize to as argument, and then chooses an appropriate backend depending on the operating system, configures, starts and enables it to start on boot.
Currently, the following OSes are supported with the following backends:
Alpine Linux: builtin busybox NTPd
REQUIRED MULTIPLE PARAMETERS¶
The name or IP address of a peer to synchronize to.
# 2.XXX.ntp.org are IPv6-enabled pools __networktime --peer 2.ch.pool.ntp.org \ --peer 2.europe.pool.ntp.org
