How to Configure NTP Server on NetScaler MAS

You can configure a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server in NetScaler MAS to synchronize its clock with the NTP server. Configuring an NTP server ensures that the NetScaler MAS clock has the same date and time settings as the other servers on the network.

To configure an NTP server on NetScaler MAS:

  1. Navigate to System > NTP Servers, and then click Add.

  2. On the Create NTP Server page, enter the following details:

    • Server Name/IP Address – Enter the domain name or IP address of the NTP server. The name or IP address cannot be changed after you have added the NTP server.

    • Minimum Poll Interval – Specify the minimum value for the interval between transmitted NTP messages, in seconds as a power of 2. For example, if you want the minimum poll interval to be 64 seconds, which can be expressed as 2^6, enter 6.

    • Maximum Poll Interval – Specify the maximum value for the interval between transmitted NTP messages, in seconds as a power of 2. For example, if you want the maximum poll interval to be 256 seconds, which can be expressed as 2^8, enter 8.

    • Key Identifier - Enter the key identifier that can be used for symmetric key authentication with the NTP server. Do not add a key identifier if you choose to select Autokey.

    • Autokey - Select Autokey if you want to use public key authentication with the NTP server. Do not select if you want to add a key identifier.

    • Preferred – Select this option if you want to specify this NTP server as the preferred server for clock synchronization. This applies only if more than one server is configured.

  3. Click Create.
