configure NTP between 6509 and 4948 switches

Hi,

our 6509 is configured as NTP master. Our 4948 is configured as NTP client.

on each of these switches we have configured a management VRF.

The problem is that 4948 can not synchronize its clock with NTP master. Both switches are directly connected.

show cdp neighbor on 4948 switch:

6K5                Fas 1             138             R S I  WS-C6509- Gig 2/2/43

interface config on 6509:

interface GigabitEthernet2/2/43

description *** Mgmt Switch Externe 1 ***

switchport

switchport access vlan 1900

switchport mode access

wrr-queue cos-map 1 1 1

wrr-queue cos-map 2 1 0

wrr-queue cos-map 3 1 4

wrr-queue cos-map 3 2 2

wrr-queue cos-map 3 3 3

wrr-queue cos-map 3 4 6

wrr-queue cos-map 3 5 7

udld port

spanning-tree portfast edge

spanning-tree bpduguard enable

end

interface config on 4948:

interface FastEthernet1

description ********** Interface Mgmt **********

ip vrf forwarding mgmtVrf

ip address 10.100.254.32 255.255.255.0

speed auto

duplex auto

end

I activated the following debugs on both switches:

- debug ntp packet

- debug ntp event

debug on 4948:

Nov 15 08:42:16.640: NTP: xmit packet to 10.100.254.1:

Nov 15 08:42:16.640:  leap 3, mode 3, version 3, stratum 0, ppoll 64

Nov 15 08:42:16.640:  xmt D26CA468.A40C1B76 (09:42:16.640 CET Tue Nov 15 2011)

debugs on 6509 do not show any packets received or sent to 4948.

any help would be appreciated

Re: configure NTP between 6509 and 4948 switches

It sounds like you might be mixing up your Layer 2 (VLAN) and Layer 3 (SVIs and routed interfaces) a bit. Your 6509 interface is a non-routed port. Is the Mgmt VRF you mentioned available over VLAN 1900? e.g., you would need something like:

interface vlan 1900

ip vrf forwarding mgmt

...in your config.

Otherwise the default routing table (RIB) on the 6509 will be servicing layer 3 requests on Vlan 1900.

Hope this helps.

Re: configure NTP between 6509 and 4948 switches

on 6509, here's the config of interface vlan 1900:

6K5#sh run int vlan 1900

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 127 bytes

!

interface Vlan1900

ip vrf forwarding VRF_Mgmt

ip address 10.100.254.1 255.255.255.0

no ip redirects

no ip proxy-arp

end

on the 4948, there is no interface vlan1900.

for other devices, NTP packets are sent and exchanged on vlan1900. But there's trouble only with this 4948, which now I think it's due to the presence of VRF.

Update: problem solved:

On the 4948, I replaced "ntp server 10.100.254.1" with "ntp server vrf mgmtVrf 10.100.254.1" and added "ntp source Fa1" to specify the interface that issues NTP packets

Thanks for the guidance
