Been working with Cisco gear since 2000. 4 years experience with Nortel DPN and Passport. 4 years experience with UNISYS DCP 50 (I know, WTF is that!).
Currently, working with Cisco R&S and wireless ... and tinkering with Asterisk.
Asterisk is now working and I've got Lenny enabled. Fun times ahead!
The reason why NTP won't/never work is because the NTP "source" is a Windows-based system. MS' "NTP" is not based on standards but their own interpretation. MS boxes can sync NTP with anyone else but not the other way around.

Understood. Our models do support it.
There's really no "special consideration". uPoE is enabled by default and the ports regulate the power downstream automatically (by default).
How-much-power-per-port or how-many-uPoE ports is solely depend on how much power is available and subjected first-come-first-serve-until-exhausted.
Let's say the output to the command of "sh power inline" gives 1000w power allowance. This will mean that this power "allowance" is given to anyone who requests power until there is no longer enough or no longer left. There's no "uPoE has first priority".
For power redundancy, there are two ways around this:
1. Extra power supply; and
2. Power stacking.
3850 supports both. Power stacking means the switch can take the power of another switch in a stack as long as the stack is connected to a power stack (not a stacking cable).
Does this make any sense?
