We have two NTP servers (Windows & Ubuntu) connected with (0.africa.pool.ntp.org, 1.africa.pool.ntp.org) servers.
The time will be change on April 28 to be 1 hour forward, so how to make sure that the NTP will be synced automatically while the time changed as that will impact our servers.
@moudmm , welcome to the community!
NTP servers operate always in UTC, so local time change cannot affect their operation. However, you may want to ensure that the device you are using is correctly up to date concerning time zone information.
That is up to your software not the pool. As he stated pool time is always in UTC no matter where in the world you are. It’s up to your local systems to convert UTC to local time. In this case all your software will need to be updated to support the time change.
Ubuntu primarily manages time zone data through the tzdata package. You just have to install software updates as normal and you will (eventually) pick up time zone changes. (You may also have to restart programs or reboot for changes to take effect.)
(Some software may have internal time zone definitions, though.)
