NTP Server

Can the comware platform act as an NTP server? (10500 specifically) The documentation leads me to believe it can't, however it is a little fuzzy.

 

Thanks,

Re: NTP Server

Hi Dan,

In my testing, i've found that by instructing ntpd on Linux to use NTPv3 when communicating with a Comware switch (rather than v4, which is the default), it was able to see it as a time server.  Following is an example of 'ntpq -pn' output on one of my systems.  The first 3 peers are Linux servers and the last one is a 5500-EI switch running Comware 5.20 r2208.
