I have recently setup a medium size network with around 70 switches and I am now getting to the point where I need to configure the time on those switches. I understand that I need to identify a device to use as NTP server. We don't currently have a spare router so the option is to buy one to use solely as NTP server. Does any of you know the cheapest cisco model i could get as it would be a waste to get an expensive one just to use as NTP server unless there is another way that does not involve getting a Router. Also can I use a windows server as an NTP server to use with switches?
Since you have a small to medium size network you can use a couple of servers and set them up as NTP servers. Then use the Internet or other authoritative source for your NTP server to synchronize their time. Then have all your network equipment synchronize their time to theses servers.
We have a PDC emulator that is configured as an ntp server. On a switch, I have entered the command "ntp server ip_address_of_ntp_server" in config mode but the time on the switch is not synchronised. Am I missing something?
