Disabling time synchronization without changing the SNTP configuration (CLI)

The recommended method for disabling time synchronization is to use the timesync command.


no timesync
Halts time synchronization without changing your SNTP configuration.


Suppose SNTP is running as the switch's time synchronization protocol, with broadcast as the SNTP mode and the factory-default polling interval. You would halt time synchronization with this command:

switch(config)# no timesync

If you then viewed the SNTP configuration, you would see the following:

SNTP with time synchronization disabled

switch(config)# show sntp
 SNTP Configuration
  Time Sync Mode: Disabled
  SNTP Mode : Broadcast
  Poll Interval (sec) [720] : 720
