configure ntp server/peer add

configure ntp [server | peer] add [ip_address | host_name] {key keyid} {option [burst | initial-burst]}


Configures an NTP server or peer.

Syntax Description

ip_address Specifies the IP address of the NTP server or peer.
host_name Specifies the host name of the NTP server or peer.
keyid Specifies the key ID as a value from 1 to 65534.
burst Follows the same burst mechanism when an NTP server is reachable.
initial-burst Allows the system to send six burst packets when an NTP server becomes unreachable (discovered but unreachable).



Usage Guidelines

The initial-burst option is useful when a fast time synchronization is required at the initial stage.


The following command adds an NTP server named “Missouri” with key 5 and an initial burst:

configure ntp server add Missouri key 5 initial-burst
