NTP time synchronization with Samba DC

Dear community,
we do have a big problem with logging in at our clients and also using the roaming profiles. It is possible to login at windows with local profils, but not in Linux clients. So what we found out, that the NTP is on a different IP then the DC- so if the time of the server (DC) and the clients are not perfectly synchronized you get espacially with Linux troubles with logging in- any solutions? We would appreciate some hints.

for windows client that can be solved by “net time \MY_PDC /set /yes” in the netlogon.bat

But if that´s all true I suppose that is a bug!? because DC always has to send time information to the clients!

Have you tried to set the DC IP as NTP server for the clients?

No- that´s not possible because usually NTP settings are deactivated on clients, when they become member of a a domain- and the time synchronization is pointed on the DC automatically. But in NS7 it looks like, that the NTP Server is only projecting to the other IP address of the server and not to the one of the DC.

Effectively nmap on DC IP does not show an NTP service available:

    # nmap -sU -p 123

Starting Nmap 7.40 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2017-01-11 12:32 CET
Nmap scan report for
Host is up (0.00016s latency).
123/udp closed ntp

If clients expect an NTP server running on a DC, we should add it!
