ntp-wait - wait for NTP server to synchronize
[ -f ] [ -n tries ] [ -s sleep ] [ -v ]
ntp-wait waits until the locally running ntpd is in state 4 (synchronized).
This could be useful at boot time, to delay the boot sequence until after
"ntpd -g" has set the time.
Force hard failure if state is unknown.
- -n tries
Number of tries before giving up (default 1000 = 10min+)
- -s sleep
Seconds to sleep between tries (default 6s = 10/min)
