Hi,

 

You have configured these switches  to serve time to each other when none of them has the correct time  or is authoritative.

Configure your switches to get time from an external ntp server. If you do not have Internet access and would like to manage time manually, then configure your switches or one of you switches to be NTP master.

The recommendation is  to configure your switches to sync to and external ntp server.

 

Thanks

John

Hi John,

 

thanks for quick response.

 

10.162.251.71/72 are hardware servers. Are you saying these serves have issue?

 

To use external NTP server, these switch is after firewall. And customer is not allowing to do any port opening in Firewall. 

Hi, 

After the IOS 12.<X> NTP version 4 is the NTP version default. Can you check that is your server is supporting to version 4?

 

Otherwise, you can go with V3 from the router itself.

NTP server 10.162.251.71 version 3

Hi Deepak,

 

yes , default version is 4. I have set to 3 too but still didn't works.

 

Actually 10.162.251.71/72 are VM severs. are there any known NTP sync issue between them

Hi, 

Please share the output of below commands:

  • debug ip packets <acl>
  • debug ntp packets
  • debug ntp validity
  • debug ntp sync
  • debug ntp events

 

ACL for debugging setup like this: 

permit udp any eq 123 any eq 123

 

And make sure, there is no ACL or firewall is blocking the UDP port 123.

 

Thanks, 

Deepak Kumar

Hi Deepak,

 

i have attached output for given commands. But below commands are not taking.

Also 10.162.251.71/72 are directly connected and no ACL is configured.

 

  • debug ntp validity
  • debug ntp syn

 

 

Hi,

thanks for output and there is some bug reported for the same issue:

Hi,

 

Where are these servers getting time from? i.e. What is the NTP configuration of these servers? What OS is  running on the VMs

 

Thanks

John

Hi John,

Will share you asked details soon.

 

Hi deepak,

 

If you are saying this is bug but how other devices with same c3650 model are working.

Hello

Note:

ntp server x.x.x.  this client need to be pointed to an authoritative time server
ntp peer x.x.x.   peers are non authoritative with each other , they should agree on a time

 

 

So if your NTP master isnt authoritative for the network then it wont work, Also check if you are not being prohibited by access-listing or authentication key

Dear Paul,

i have checked with NTP peer but no luck.

As of now i am suspecting issue from 10.162.251.71/72.

Will post progressive update.

There was a question about what OS is running on the server and I do not see an answer to that. I would also ask what is the source of time on the server? If it is using Windows time service then that could explain this issue. Windows time service is sufficient to offer time to Windows devices but is not a full implementation of NTP and Cisco IOS devices will typically not sync to a device using Windows time service.

Hi, 

@Richard Burts I disagree on your point "Cisco IOS devices will typically not sync to a device using Windows time service." 

I implemented the same in many places with windows server 2008/2012. It is working fine. Even same setup is working in my office.
