boot-server (NTP)

Syntax

boot-server address;

Hierarchy Level

[edit system ntp]

Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Description

Configure the server that NTP queries when the router or switch boots to determine the local date and time.

When you boot the router or switch, it issues an ntpdate request, which polls a network server to determine the local date and time. You need to configure a server that the router or switch uses to determine the time when the router or switch boots. Otherwise, NTP will not be able to synchronize to a time server if the server’s time appears to be very far off of the local router’s or switch’s time.

Options

address—Address of an NTP server. You must specify an address, not a hostname.

Required Privilege Level

system—To view this statement in the configuration.

system-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
