config system ntp

Interactive command to enable NTP and direct Network Time Protocol requests to a time server, if the system is not configured to collect NTP from the Uplogix Control Center.

If NTP is disabled, the internal clock will be used to set the system time.

The Uplogix Local Manager does not provide NTP synchronization services to other devices.

Note: If you configure the Uplogix Local Manager to be managed by an Uplogix Control Center, the system is automatically configured to use the Uplogix Control Center as an NTP server. You may change this manually; however, if the system time and the Uplogix Control Center time differ by more than a few seconds, this generates an error message. If you receive this alarm, set the Uplogix Control Center as the NTP primary server, or set both the Uplogix Control Center and the Local Manager to use the same NTP server.
