Configuring an NTP Peer on a C Series Controller (SRC CLI)

Use the following configuration statements to configure NTP on a C Series Controller to operate in symmetric active mode:

edit system ntp peer address {version version;prefer;}

To configure NTP to operate in symmetric active mode:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures an NTP peer, and specify the IP address or hostname of an NTP peer.
    [edit system ntp]user@host# edit peer address

    For example, to specify an NTP peer that has an IP address of 192.0.2.40:

    [edit system ntp]user@host# edit peer 192.0.2.40 [edit system ntp peer 192.0.2.40]user@host#
  2. (Optional) Specify the version of NTP to be used for outgoing packets.
    [edit system ntp server address ]user@host# set version version
  3. (Optional) If you configure more than one peer, specify whether this server is to be contacted first for synchronization.
    [edit system ntp server address ]user@host# set prefer
