Communication Between S/4HANA and an EDI Server Failed due to Inconsistent Time

1. Shutdown both HANA DB and S/4HANA Applications in S4H.customer.local
2. As user root, backup the /etc/ntp.conf file in S4H.customer.local
3. Run the ntpdate -u command to update the machine clock.
   e.g.: ntpdate -u
4. Open the /etc/ntp.conf file and add the NTP server: Add the line below:
   server  mode 5 prefer
5. Restart the NTP Daemon using the command (as user root):
systemctl restart ntpd
6. Check the clock settings
7. Check the status of the ntpd daemon
systemctl status ntpd

Restart an SAP service internally in SAP without restarting the service itself

If we restart whole instance, users get disconnected etc, so in a case, for example, we want to restart only message server, we can eithr use MMC and All Task > Restart Service for MessageServer or more simply via command:

sapcontrol -nr 61 -function RestartService
and to check:

sapcontrol -nr 61 -function GetProcessList
Kudos to Stijn De Regge and Tibor Fenyosi for the guide! :3
