Hi all,

I installed the new ntp-4.2.4p5 in Redhat 7.2 and I noticed that ntp-
keygen doesn’t works as it used to work in previous versions. I tried
to generate Autokey keys and certificates
but it doesn’t work as you can see bellow. Is it a bug or I am missing
something? Did they change the ntp-keygen without updating its
# ntp-keygen -H
ntp-keygen: illegal option – H
ntp-keygen (ntp) - Create a NTP host key - Ver. 4.2.4p5
USAGE:  ntp-keygen [ -<flag> [<val>] | --<name>[{=| }<val>] ]...

   -D Str set-debug-level Set the output debug message level
   -M no  md5key         generate MD5 keys
