Enabling SNTP in Broadcast mode

Because the switch provides an SNTP polling interval (default: 720 seconds), you need only timesync and sntp commands for minimal SNTP broadcast configuration.

SNTP in Broadcast Mode shows time synchronization in the factory default configuration, TimeP.

  1. To view the current time synchronization, enter show sntp.
  2. Use the timesync command to set SNTP as the time synchronization mode:

    timesync sntp

  3. Use the SNTP command to enable SNTP for Broadcast mode:

    sntp broadcast

  4. View the SNTP configuration again to verify the configuration.
