How to set the time to fail over to local time.k (Doc ID 2144883.1)

Last updated on JULY 22, 2016

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.11 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [2.6.39] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to configure the NTP service to fall back to the local time on the server in case of failure of the NTP service. This is useful in RAC or other cluster environments, as RAC nodes can end up being automatically restarted or "fenced" if they end up with asynchronous time with the other nodes in the cluster.
