Last night we successfully upgraded our ipa server to OEL 7.9, and
However the ipa.service will not start, because it fails at the NTP Service.
All other ipa components start if we use the --ignore-service-failures

Assuming stale, cleaning and proceeding

Forced start, ignoring ntpd Service, continuing normal operation

I am ok with ntpd not starting, we have long since moved to chrony, and
have ntpd disabled and masked.
The question is, how do I configure our ipa-server to not use ntpd?
I am aware that there are options for ntpd on installation, but am
unsure how to do this for an existing server.
Masking the service won't help because it is managed by ipactl. It
determines the list of services by looking in
A entry looks like:
ipaConfigString: startOrder 45
ipactl only looks at the startOrder of ipaConfigString. You'll need to
delete this entry entirely.
