RHEL 8, RH124, Chapter 11, Section 9 errors

RHEL 8, RH124, Chapter 11, Section 9 has a couple of errors (one major, one minor) in the lesson:

First, it says this:

The problem here is that the timedatectl set-time command will return an error if NTP is active (as seen in the above example from the lesson). This is evidenced by:

This can be categorized as a quibble, really. The text says that "... option requires either a true or false argument..."

This isn't correct (the problem is the word "requires"). 0 or off (in addition to false) can be used to disable NTP and 1 or on (in addition to true) can turn NTP on:

Now that NTP is disabled, the time can be manually set...
