Command Ref (http://extrcdn.extremenetworks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/EXOSCommandRef_15.1_Version4.pdf) says "configure ntp [server | peer] add [ | ] {key
} {option [burst | initial-burst]}"

670-48p-10g does not recognize "sh ntp" or "config ntp"

Just want to point it to a local time server.

What am I missing?

If you have 15.1 installed you will require a NTP XMOD to configure NTP. With the correct entitlement this can be found on the support website. This is better explained in the article below:

Hope this helps!

To add to what Patrick has mentioned here, EXOS versions less than 15.4 are near or have already reached End-of-Support.
Have a look at the Recommended Release document (due for an update soon!)

Will do, but anything that didn't get updated this summer will likely wait until next. Seems school breaks get shorter all the time (all way more gear to keep updated).
Thank you!

You can like my comments and I am sure Drew will take care of the resolved part :).

I agree breaks in general get shorter and shorter.

I'll take care of the "resolution" here.  Glad we could help.
Just to clarify, is SNTP what you were looking for?  Or did Patrick's NTP information help?

For the switch to get the time from our time server, so sntp appears to be the correct answer. Didn't realize they were different (stuck on another vendor language this week, lol).

NTP will also provide the time. I would recommend taking a look at both to see which one fits your criteria better. I know it seems like a simple concept but the way certain situations are handled is different.
