openvz vps-server time sync issue

We have one openvz server and have some vps on it

few days before one client said that the server time needs to synchronise his server time to his local

I entered his whm and set time zone Amsterdam/Europe(the zone he wants)

but the time still shows 5 to 10 minutes delayed, On searching i found that we need to synchronise node time for this.

To this happen, we need to install NTPD(Network Time Protocol) on our node server


yum install ntp ntpdate ntp-doc

chkconfig ntpd on


Synchronize the system clock

ntpdate vps-name

/etc/init.d/ntpd start

you can edit the conf file here

vi /etc/ntp.conf
