enable sntp-client

enable sntp-client


Enables the SNTP client.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

SNTP can be used by the switch to update and synchronize its internal clock from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server. After the SNTP client has been enabled, the switch sends out a periodic query to the indicated NTP server, or the switch listens to broadcast NTP updates. In addition, the switch supports the configured setting for Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) offset and the use of Daylight Savings Time (DST).


The following command enables the SNTP client:

enable sntp-client
