NTP on Loopback Interface

Answered Question
Jan 27th, 2010

I am trying to enable NTP as the source for the loopback interface and when I set the command "ntp source Loopback0" the router says the following:

Router(config)#ntp source Loopback0
ntpio_set_global_source failed
Router(config)#
Jan 27 21:19:24.471 UTC: ntpio_set_global_source: not an NTP interface.

Any ideas on why this can't be done.

I have this problem too.
