Ntp not updating time
Next you need to set your /etc/localtime file according to your timezone.If you go into the directory /usr/share/zoneinfo you will see a lot of different timezone files, e.g.
Every mechanism in the world of electronics and computers is based on time.Automation as a concept is defined by intelligent actions coordinated by time or in time.When talking about automation engineering, smart projects are driven by very precise triggers and calculations based on timing and synchronization.ntpd is better as it will keep your computers synchronized all the time. On my current distribution the Beaglebone Black does not come with a working NTP installation in order to set the time.After the machine has synchronized to a NTP server, the operating system corrects the chip from time to time.
In case there is no TOY chip or for some reason its time is more than 1000s from the server time, ntpd assumes something must be terribly wrong and the only reliable action is for the operator to intervene and set the clock by hand.
In this article you will find everything about how to use ESP8266 as a time source for your Arduino projects without an RTC external module.
The NTP acronym stands for Network Time Protocol, a networking communication protocol for clock synchronization between network clients, operating since 1980’s.
Because the board doesn’t have a battery backup, this means that we need a way to set the time when the board is running.
If you wish to set the time you could do it on a once-off basis…However, if you reboot your Beaglebone the time will be back to the good old year 2000.
So, we need a way to update this each time the Beaglebone boots.
