    Specifying Which NTP Server a C Series Controller Contacts on Startup

    When you boot a C Series Controller, it issues an ntpdate request, which polls a network server to determine the local date and time. Configure a server that the system uses to determine the time when the system boots. Otherwise, NTP cannot synchronize with a time server if the server’s time is very far off the local system’s time.

    To configure the NTP boot server:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures NTP.
      [edit]user@host# edit system ntp
    2. Specify the address or hostname of the network NTP server.
      [edit system ntp]user@host# set boot-server address

      For example:

      [edit system ntp]user@host# set boot-server
