I'm trying to synchronize time on my Intel NUC that is running Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS with an NTP server that is running on a Windows PC.
I already checked that the NTP server is running correctly.
It seems to me as if the service doesn't read from the config file
Local time: Wed 2019-01-16 21:32:01 CET Universal time: Wed 2019-01-16 20:32:01 UTC RTC time: Wed 2019-01-16 20:32:01 Time zone: Europe/Vienna (CET, +0100) Network time on: yes NTP synchronized: no RTC in local TZ: no
systemctl status systemd-timesyncd right after
systemctl restart systemd-timesyncd

My config file in
# This file is part of systemd. # # systemd is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it # under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by # the Free Software Foundation; either version 2.1 of the License, or # (at your option) any later version. # # Entries in this file show the compile time defaults. # You can change settings by editing this file. # Defaults can be restored by simply deleting this file. # # See timesyncd.conf(5) for details.

If it changes anything, all commands are run as root over an ssh connection.
Is there something I'm missing?
I don't have time to play around with this issue anymore. I will use a workaround on my end so I don't have to rely on the system time.
Answers are still appreciated since fixing this would be a much cleaner solution.
