    Posted 25 days ago
    Hello
    We have problems of Switch 6200,6300 and 8320 with the NTP protocol.
    The time is wrong.
    The commands used are:
    ntp enable
    ntp server X
    X = Serve NTP
    ntp_error

    Thank you

    Hello Oscar, that warning message means only that there is a drift between your Web Browser time and the Switch time...is it correct your PC and wrong the Switch or vice-versa? supposing the Switch has wrong time reference then you need to investigate why...how it is exactly setup the NTP on your ArubaOS-CX Switches? is the NTP configured properly and reachable via the mgmt or the default VRF? what's about investigate on the Switch's logs?

    Need a bit more info  to help you./yourself

    *Have you set the timezone ? clock timezone ?
    *Where is your NTP source  coming from in band or mgmt
    *sh ntp status
    *show ntp statistics
    *show ntp associations

    also check your PC clock/timezone etc  as stated above

    ntp server x.x.x.x iburst
    ntp server y.y.y.y iburst
    ntp enable
    ntp vrf mgmt     <------------------ you can use any VRF for this

    Hello Oscar, an answer about iburst option meaning could be found here (or easily through a web search), it's not tied to Aruba device...it's a property of NTP.

    You switch is not synchronized to your private NTP server at 192.168.200.93...there is very less to do if first you don't diagnose why your switch is not able to synchronize to it.
    Is the NTP Server deployed on a Linux host or Windows host? how it is configured? is the NTP able to ping the Switch on the correct VRF?

    Just an example (taken from one Aruba 8320):

    8320# show ntp status
    NTP Status Information

    NTP : Enabled
    NTP Authentication : Disabled
    NTP Server Connections : Using the mgmt VRF

    System time : Wed Apr 14 09:12:24 CEST 2021
    NTP uptime : 85 days, 21 hours, 21 minutes, 46 seconds

    NTP Synchronization Information

    NTP Server : <NTP-1-Private-IP-Address> at stratum 3
    Poll interval : 64 seconds
    Time accuracy : Within -0.000415 seconds
    Reference time : Wed Apr 14 2021 8:56:30.311 as per Europe/Rome

    8320# show ntp servers
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    NTP SERVER KEYID MINPOLL MAXPOLL OPTION VER
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    <NTP-1-Private-IP-Address> -- 6 10 iburst 3
    <NTP-2-Private-IP-Address> -- 6 10 iburst 3
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    8320# show ntp associations
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ID NAME REMOTE REF-ID ST LAST POLL REACH
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * 1 <NTP-1-Private-IP-Address> <NTP-1-Private-IP-Address> 37.247.53.178 3 65 64 377
    + 2 <NTP-2-Private-IP-Address> <NTP-2-Private-IP-Address> 212.45.144.88 3 62 64 377
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    snippet of Running Configuration about NTP/Clock (my reference NTP Servers are reached through the mgmt VRF):

    clock timezone europe/rome
    ntp server <NTP-1-Private-IP-Address> iburst
    ntp server <NTP-2-Private-IP-Address> iburst
    ntp enable
    no ntp authentication
    ntp vrf mgmt

    Hi
    The server is a Windows. The commands used:
    clock timezone Europe/Madrid
    ntp server <server1> iburst
    ntp server <server2> iburst
    ntp enable
    no ntp authentication
    ntp vrf mgmt
    The error still comes out.

    Thanks
