Synchronizing Time Across Cluster Nodes

Aug 31, 2016

The cluster uses Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to synchronize the time across cluster nodes. PTP uses multicast packets to synchronize the time. If there are some issues in time synchronization, you must disable PTP and configure Network Time Protocol (NTP) on the cluster.

To enable/disable PTP by using the command line interface

At the command prompt of the cluster IP address, type:

set ptp -state disable

To enable/disable PTP by using the configuration utility

  1. Log on to the cluster IP address.
  2. Navigate to System > Cluster.
  3. In the details pane, under Utilities, click Configure PTP Settings.
  4. In the Enable/Disable PTP dialog box, select whether you want to enable or disable PTP.
  5. Click OK.
