NTP clock-period

Unanswered Question

We are decommissioning a legacy NTP server and are moving to a new one. Can someone tell me if I have to remove NTP clock-period before pointing to a new  server?

Regards,

Marcin

NTP clock period is not an integral part of any configuration.  It is a appliance-generated line that can be ignored or erased.

ntp clock-period is a value that the router or switch calculates as it keeps track of the time from the server to which it has synced. If you are pointing the router or switch to a new/different server you do not need to worry about ntp clock-period (no need to remove it) and the router will calculate a new value as it gets sync with the new server.


If you are moving a config from one device to another device it is advisable to remove the ntp clock-period from the config before you load it on the new device.
