Configure NTP into the Fabric

Hello to all,

in the "help tsclockserver" command, appear this:

"But only the Principal switch (when the Security feature not enabled), or the Primary FCS switch (when the Security feature is enabled) connects to the NTP server (if specified), and broadcasts Time Service update."

I have a FABRIC and i want configure NTP server. Do I have configure NTP server with this command in all swith into the Fabric?

Regards.

Hi.

I think that you can configure NTP just on the main switches of your fabrics.

The "new time" will be replicated on whole fabric, as happen with SAN Zones.

I hope this help you.

Good luck!

Hi,

That's right. the only problem occurs, when (in case of a fabric reconfiguration event) another switch becomes the principal switch. Then this switch should also have ntp configured.
