Properties (click to see Operations)

Name Data Type Permissions Description
serverip
<String>
Read-write
IP address of the NTP server.
Minimum length = 1
servername
<String>
Read-write
Fully qualified domain name of the NTP server.
minpoll
<Double>
Read-write
Minimum time after which the NTP server must poll the NTP messages. In seconds, expressed as a power of 2.
Minimum value = 4
Maximum value = 17
maxpoll
<Double>
Read-write
Maximum time after which the NTP server must poll the NTP messages. In seconds, expressed as a power of 2.
Minimum value = 4
Maximum value = 17
autokey
<Boolean>
Read-write
Use the Autokey protocol for key management for this server, with the cryptographic values (for example, symmetric key, host and public certificate files, and sign key) generated by the ntp-keygen utility. To require authentication for communication with the server, you must set either the value of this parameter or the key parameter.
key
<Double>
Read-write
Key to use for encrypting authentication fields. All packets sent to and received from the server must include authentication fields encrypted by using this key. To require authentication for communication with the server, you must set either the value of this parameter or the autokey parameter.
Minimum value = 1
Maximum value = 65534
preferredntpserver
<String>
Read-write
Preferred NTP server. The NetScaler appliance chooses this NTP server for time synchronization among a set of correctly operating hosts.
Default value: NO
Possible values = YES, NO
__count
<Double>
Read-only
count parameter

Operations (click to see Properties)

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response: NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the "warning" query parameter as "yes". For example, to get warnings while connecting to the NetScaler appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http://<netscaler-ip-address>/nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code "209 X-NITRO-WARNING".

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations: NITRO allows you to logon to the NetScaler appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER:<username>

    X-NITRO-PASS:<password>

    Note: In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN=<tokenvalue>
