I'm playing with SUSE 12 and teaching myself the systemctl command. I've tried to get the ntp server to run but keep getting weird responses:

systemctl start ntpd.service -- just hangs

systemctl status ntpd.service -- shows conflicting information

Process: 1345 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/start-ntpd start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
ntpd.service start operation timed out. Terminating


Not sure what I'm doing wrong ?
