Time Synchronization issue on CUCM with NTP Server (Cisco Router)

Hello Experts,

We need your suggestion to configure Cisco 3800 Router as NTP Server and Syn with Cisco Call Manager to show correct time order on Cisco IP Phones.

There was a NTP Server before which is remove now but IP Phones are showing 30 min off from the Actual time.

We did Cisco 3800 as NTP server and added in CUCM as NTP Server but still time is showing different on Cisco IP Phones.

Please assist.

Thanks,

Time Synchronization issue on CUCM with NTP Server (Cisco Route

Hi Amin,

I was just refering the line from  SRND which says

Cisco highly recommends configuring the publisher to point to a Stratum-1, Stratum-2, or Stratum-3 NTP server to ensure that the cluster time is synchronized with an external time source.

can u run the command in Publisher

utils diagnose module ntp_stratum  and share the output.

utils diagnose test

Re: Time Synchronization issue on CUCM with NTP Server (Cisco R

Hi Amin,

Which version of CUCM you using ?

Are all  phones are getting date/time  by cucm or you are using some ntp reference in date/time group of that device pool ?

Re: Time Synchronization issue on CUCM with NTP Server (Cisco R

Re: Time Synchronization issue on CUCM with NTP Server (Cisco R

Hi Amin,

As asked by Prasad,please mention CUCM version and the model of IP phones which are facing the timing problem.

Did u ever try to reset Date/time group ?

Re: Time Synchronization issue on CUCM with NTP Server (Cisco R

Hi Amin,

Just refer the link

After deleting, modifying, or adding NTP server, you must restart all the other nodes in the cluster for the changes to take affect.
