Configure an NTP Server

Extreme Networks devices typically obtain the time and date for their internal clocks from an NTP server.

  1. Toggle the NTP Server function to ON.
  2. Choose to use an existing NTP Server Setting, or proceed to the next step.
  3. Enter a new NTP Server name.
  4. Enter an optional description.
  5. For HiveOS Device Sync Interval, set a polling interval for devices to use for internal clock synchronization.
  6. For Switch Sync Interval, choose a polling interval to apply to Fabric Engine switches.
  7. Select an existing NTP server from the table or use the add icon to create a new host name or IP address.
  8. Repeat the procedure to add more NTP servers to the profile.
    The second entry becomes the secondary NTP server, and so forth. Because NTP servers are accessed in order from the top according to their position in the profile, you can use the up and down arrows to rearrange them if necessary.
  9. To apply NTP servers to devices via classification, select an existing classification rule or select the add icon to add a new rule.
    To add a new rule, see Configure a Classification Rule.
  10. Select Save NTP Server.
  11. If you are ready to deploy the network policy, select Next or continue to the next Management server.
