The NTP is a networking protocol used for clock synchronization. It is used to set all connecting computer systems by way of an address to a source (for example, using an address linking GMT between the systems).
According to the PeerApp Administration Guide, section Configuring Local Time:
You configure local time on the UltraBand 1000 either manually or through the use of
a Network Time Server via NTP.
To configure local time manually
time <MMDDYYhhmm>at the configuration# CLI prompt, where <MMDDYYhhmm> is the new date and time (two digits each for month, date, year, hours, and minutes). The date and time are set.
Note: the Command Line Interface configuration# prompt requires Enabled mode privileges.
To configure local time using NTP
Using the Command Line Interface
configat the enabled CLI prompt, to start the Configuration mode.
ntp server-ip <IP address>at the CLI config prompt, where <IP address> is the IP address of the NTP server (enter <127.127.1.0> for the local server).
ntp timezone <timezone>at the CLI config prompt, where <timezone> is the local time zone according to its GMT offset.
IMPORTANT: The NTP only supports the GMT (+/-) notation as a valid time zone.
Apply configuration using
Using the Configuration File
Include the following lines in the file
- Follow similar steps as listed in the article Add Email Recipients for Cache Notifications to perform this change in the Configuration file.
- This change implies a service restart, so be prepared for a quick system outage as a side effect.
- Keep in mind that a change in the machine clock time may disrupt the graphs generation for the amount of time of the offset, i.e. one hour ahead may result in a time gap with no graphs being generated by the system.
