Rocky NTP server

Hello everyone

could someone tell me the server name for ntp server for rocky to add it chronyc

thanks for your time and help :slight_smile:

@JustSomeone I don’t think there is an official ntp server for Rocky. (I could be wrong, but I’ve never heard one mentioned). You might want to take a look here and choose a couple of servers close to you: the internet cluster of ntp servers

around 3 days ago i need to install rocky and for some reason during the installation i get note at the end of the screen where we choose the location that the ntp is not reachable (i think i saw word rocky on that server )so i continue the installation and after system start i find the source is not register to the chronyc

and thanks a lot for the link will use one of them till i find the old one

and have a nice day :slight_smile:

The default NTP pool provided by our chrony package should be sufficient (

If it’s not reachable, you will need to address it from your network.
