  • 1.  Extreme Summit x450a as NTP Server And Window Server 2008 as NTP Client

    Dear All,

    I've tested Summit x450a as NTP server and other summit x250e as NTP clients. It does work well. I'm also wondering whether window server 2008 or Window 7 also can point Summit x450a as NTP server?

    Appreciate your feedback. If anyone done it before, could you please share what are the additional configuration need to be done on Summit x450a as well as Window Client?

    Thanks.
    BR,MH

    Lets start by asking where is the Windows 2008 server getting its time from (including the timezone (offset)and Summertime information(if used).
    If the summit is a Client then are you using commands like the following

    configure sntp-client {primary | secondary} server {[i] |

    Hi Jason

    Thanks for your reply. In my case, Summit x450a will be NTP server and Window Server 2008 will be NTP Client. So Window Server 2008 will be getting it's time from Summit x450a. Understand that NTP and SNTP can't run at the same time on the switch.
