The command "cluvfy comp clocksync" fails on EL7 as seen below

CTSS is in Observer state. Switching over to clock synchronization checks using NTP

Starting Clock synchronization checks using Network Time Protocol(NTP)...
NTP configuration file "/etc/ntp.conf" existence check passed
PRVF-7590 : "ntpd" is not running on node "node1"
PRVG-1024 : The NTP Daemon or Service was not running on any of the cluster nodes.

PRVF-9652 : Cluster Time Synchronization Services check failed

Verification of Clock Synchronization across the cluster nodes was unsuccessful on all the specified nodes.

However, executing "systemctl status ntpd" command, we can see that the NTPD service is running on the server
