NTP/CFS config on M9216i switches

NTP & CFS does not seem to be sync'ing time between 3 MDS9216i switches running 3.0(3). According to the documentation, all is setup properly, but all 3 switches have different time values.

The prefered switch is pointing to a Time Server throught through the mgmt int.

Anyone have experience testing NTP service?

Thanks, Craig

It looks you could be hitting a known defect which is CSCsf21805. Please call TAC or have your OSM do so and ask for the workaround.

Earlier response was correct. You can verify if you're hitting this bug by doing a 'show ntp peer-status' and checking the local IP address. If NTP is bound to, you are experiencing the known bug.

Re: NTP/CFS config on M9216i switches

I'm not experiencing this bug on 3.0(3). The NTP server that was being references was a Windows 2003 server running the native time service.

After talking with the Sys Admin, it was discovered that the time services only function as a client unless some registry changes are made for it to function as a server too.

With this change in place, the 9216s now have synchronized clocks.
