Finding never clearing

Hi,

We got an alert a long time that was corrected during the initial installation and is still generating alerts.

This a bug or does something need to be done?

@SCrlove,

Thank you for your time. We are not seeing any recommendations related to NTP for now. Hence cannot confirm what could have caused the issue. As discussed let us monitor for a week to see the behavior.

I got the same alert recently about NTP for one of my Hosts that has been disconnected for months (hardware failure... waiting for a replacement).  Why would Skyline suddenly start complaining now  about NTP for a host that has been disconnected for months?
