Hi everybody,

I need help about ntp issue on my Cisco MDS (m9100-s2ek9-kickstart-mz.5.0.1a.bin ,  m9100-s2ek9-mz.5.0.1a.bin)

All my Cisco network equipements synchronises to my ntp server (Cisco catalyst 6500) without any problem except Cisco MDS equipement.

i have these informations:

ntpd[1213]: ntp:frequency error 512 PPM exceeds tolerance 500 PPM
2010 Sep 28 09:35:10 LV2-SWS-MDS1B ntpd[1355]: ntp:time reset +2.829312 s

and this is my configuration on my Cisco MDS:

ntp server
ntp source-interface  mgmt0

on my Catalyst 6500, i just define "ntp master" and "ntp source vlan 7"

Could you give me some informations to resolve this issue.

Thanks a lot

Best regards


I have this problem too.

Is this initial NTP configuration on the MDS? If so, and if the MDS clock is way off, can you set the clock manually once using "clock set x" command and then let NTP synchronize?
