Trying to install CER 7.1.1. When I get to the Network Time Protocol Client Configuration window it prompts me to put in an NTP server IP address. The install never prompts me to configure an NTP server or not. The install doc says that I should get prompted to choose NTP or not, just like a CUCM install. Did I do something wrong? I tried it several times and get the same thing. I have a Not For Resale disc and this is in a lab. Is there something special about that disc? I don't want to use NTP but I configured a Win2K3 server to be the NTP server, it's reachable but the install can never connect to it. Needless to say, I can't finish the install. Below is what I get.

There is no option to choose No NTP. You either have to put in an NTP server or you can't move on with the installation.
That is the case.... you must use NTP for this. I think most of the new UC 7.1 products require NTP now. CUCM, CUC, CER.
You should use a Cisco layer 3 swich and do this. (or some NTP source) It usually will not work with Windows. (or good luck trying, I never get it to work)
I use a switch and point my the NTP source the gateway or the VLAN on the switch and it works fine. (as long as NTP is setup on the switch) Voice routers do not count
