Hi All,

Does anyone know how to change\add a ntp server into the config on a catalyst 500 express switch?

It seems to be going to an internet NTP server by default.

Many Thanks

The switch clock is automatically synchronized with the

system clock on your network management station. You can manually set the

system clock settings if the switch should have different time settings.

I hope this helps.

Best regards.
