NTP issues on 2800 router?

Hi guys,

Have some questions regarding NTP. I have two routers, one is synched the other will not to the same server.  Both routers have the same static routes configured.

Also I have four NTP servers listed and only one appears sane. I have put the ouput of sh ntp associations detail below. I am new to NTP so maybe they are not suppose to become synched unless the first goes down? But I am not sure. Any help would be great.

Can you post the NTP configuration please?

Can you also post the output to the command "sh ntp a"?

This output shows that the appliance was able to synchronize with a stratum 2 NTP source, 203.161.12.165.

What abut the output from the one that doesn't work?

Is there anymore that you need? Routes are set on this router too and it was working just over a week ago.

Can this router successfully ping 203.161.12.165 and 194.35.252.7?

How are they connected?  Is there a FW involved?

Can you post a 2 minute of "debug ntp event" and "debug ntp packet"?

New Member

There is a firewall, however the rules are in palce to allow NTP through. Can see traffic from the router that is working, but not this router.

That's wierd.  Can this router ping the two addresses?

What is the IOS version of the router?

  2801 Software (C2801-ADVSECURITYK9-M), Version 12.4(6)T, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

It can't ping becasue the firewall blocks it. From the firewall it can ping. The 194 address has not responded since we noticed this problem yesterday.

I have more information to add to this.

The routers can ping the desired time server. This is verified by looking at the firewall logs and seeing it deny an icmp entry with the correct source and dest addresses.

Internal routing is correct and heading to the internet.

It seems as though packets are not coming back from the desired time server.

Cory,

To me it looks like the far end denying you. All the NTP systems you have should sync, the router then picks the lowest stratum. just for your own sanity point the router that isn't getting time at the router that is. The router that isn't working will pick sync and call it a stratum 3 source. 

Depending how critical the time is, You might try shutting down the service on the one that is working and seeing if you cant get it going on the currently down one.

Thanks for the reply. The servers we are using have been used for a few months now. Also I forgot to add that the router that was synced yesterday is no longer synced, so I have nothing synced at present.

How do you shut down a service on a router?

Time servers.

New Member

NTP issues on 2800 router?

in config mode:

no ntp server 203.161.12.165 prefer

That should knock it down. Might be worth the effort to get onto ttp://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Servers/StratumOneTimeServers and grab the time from them as well. The problem with free services is every now and then they go down.
