Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Adding ConnectionRetrySec=20 to systemd/timesyncd.conf not working?!!

Hi all, when I try to add ConnectionRetrySec=20 to systemd/timesyncd.conf and then execute "sudo service systemd-timesyncd restart" all seems fine.

But then I run "sudo service systemd-timesyncd status" and I get this message:
"/etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf:21: Unknown key name 'ConnectionRetrySec' in section 'Time', ignoring."

The 'ConnectionRetrySec' key is in the official docs though.
Has anyone come across this before?
Thanks in advance!!!

    Hi @tpcm,

    Please indicate the Chapter and Section you are talking about, so I can take a look at this.
