Short version: network time is not enabled in a default installation
of Fedora 23 Server, using Fedora-Server-netinst-i386-23_Beta_TC1.iso.
- Is this intended?
- What is the user expected to do? It's not obvious.
chrony is not installed, meanwhile it's installed and the default on
workstation. Right off the bat it's confusing that server and
workstation will use different services for time synchronization.
ntp and ntpdate are installed, but both are disabled, and I don't even
know what ntpdate is.
systemd-timedated.service is masked.
systemd-timesyncd.service is disabled.
dbus-org.freedesktop.timedate1.service is enabled, which apparently
just points to
Based on searching the journal, nothing is looking out to an ntp
server to set the date and time correctly. If I set the hardware clock
wrong (by a year) in firmware setup, it never gets corrected.

# systemctl enable ntpd

Fixes this, but it seems like something should be enabled by default.
