I am planning to put ACE 4710 Appliance in a DMZ to load balance in-bound traffic to serverfarm(s); however there is no NTP server for servers in that zone. I was wondering if I can use ACE 4710 Appliance as a NTP server for those servers. There are only 2 NTP commands - peer & server in version A3(2.2) Thank you in advance.
ACE4710/Admin(config)# ntp ?
peer NTP Peer address
server NTP server address
The ACE 4710 can only sync with an NTP peer or an NTP server. It will not send NTP advertisements out an interface. Perhaps you have an IOS router in your DMZ that you can configure as an NTP server. Then the ACE and other NTP clients can sync their time to that router.
