Clock setting will be cleared by reload with "ntp server" configuration?

Unanswered Question


I have configured 7204VXR (NPE300) processor with IOS Version 12.1(9) as "ntp server", and the clock settting have not been cleared by system reboot. I remember that the manual clock setting is cleared by reload or power off and on of the device.

Clock setting will not be cleared by reload or power off and on if the device is configured as "ntp server"?

Best Regards,

I don't believe that the 7204 has a calendar chip in it. If it doesn't, a reload will clear the clock, setting it to the 1993 date. You should sync the 7204 to an external ntp time source, preferably more than one.

If the 7204 does have a calendar chip, then it will work, but you are still better off using external ntp sources.
