I'm trying to setup chrony but it's not working. I start the service using one of the following command:
sudo systemctl stop chronyd; sudo systemctl start chronyd sudo systemctl restart chronyd
timedatectl says I'm not synched
timedatectl Local time: Tue 2019-11-05 08:04:47 CET Universal time: Tue 2019-11-05 07:04:47 UTC RTC time: Tue 2019-11-05 07:04:47 Time zone: Europe/Zurich (CET, +0100) System clock synchronized: no NTP service: active RTC in local TZ: no
Somehow chrony cannot seem to resolve my source (I'm using the default sources provided on Fedora)
chronyc activity 200 OK 0 sources online 0 sources offline 0 sources doing burst (return to online) 0 sources doing burst (return to offline) 1 sources with unknown address chronyc sources 210 Number of sources = 0
My config file (/etc/chrony.conf)
# Use public servers from the pool.ntp.org project. # Please consider joining the pool (http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html). pool 2.fedora.pool.ntp.org iburst # Record the rate at which the system clock gains/losses time. driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift # Allow the system clock to be stepped in the first three updates # if its offset is larger than 1 second. makestep 1.0 3 # Enable kernel synchronization of the real-time clock (RTC). rtcsync # Enable hardware timestamping on all interfaces that support it. #hwtimestamp * # Increase the minimum number of selectable sources required to adjust # the system clock. #minsources 2 # Allow NTP client access from local network. #allow 192.168.0.0/16 # Serve time even if not synchronized to a time source. #local stratum 10 # Specify file containing keys for NTP authentication. keyfile /etc/chrony.keys # Get TAI-UTC offset and leap seconds from the system tz database. leapsectz right/UTC # Specify directory for log files. logdir /var/log/chrony # Select which information is logged. #log measurements statistics tracking
The strangest thing is if I stop the daemon and run chronyd by hand then it works.

Any help to resolve this issue would be welcome.
