Re: Sync Unity with local NTP server

Not sure if it is supported by cisco. But this should work:

first manually bring the time close to that of the NTP server (go to clock and change the time)

next, stop NTP service

Then edit ntp.cnf file at c:\WINNT\ and put in server ip address

go to c:\program files\cisco\xntp\

do ntpdate to jump start NTP.

once you get a prompt back, start NTP service.

Unity does not have NTP service. For Call Manager your procedure works fine, not for Unity.

net time /setsntp:a.b.c.d where a.b.c.d is the ip address or name of the ntp svr.

restart Windows Time service from services applet or net stop "Windows Time, then net start "Windows Time
