Configuring the NTP Server

To synchronize the JCS1200 platform with other servers on the network, you must configure a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server.

To configure an NTP server:

  1. Log in to the JCS management module.
  2. Use the env command to set JCS management module 1 (mm[1]) as the configuration target. For example:

    system> env —T mm[1]
  3. Use the ntp command to configure an NTP server. For example:

    system:mm[1]> ntp —i —f 60 —en enabled

    In this example, the IP address of the NTP server is, the JCS management module clock is updated by the NTP server every 60 minutes, and NTP is enabled.
