ntpdate no server suitable for synchronization found

I was configuring one of head node of our cluster server to synchronise from our time server in our organisation, and in turn the head node becomes a NTP Server for the compute nodes that on a private IP addresses. As I was configuring the compute nodes and encounter "ntpdate[4933]: no server suitable for synchronization found"

I configured the ntp servers and ntp clients according to Setting up NTP Server for Local Network. And yet the error remain unresolved. Finally, I came across a solution

  1. Open /etc/ntp/step-tickers and replace with the name of your local NTP Server
  2. Open /etc/ntp/ntpservers and replace with the name of your local NTP Server
  3. Restart your ntp services. You should eradicate the problem
