VRF support for NTP

Details about VRF support for NTP and configuration examples.

NTP must run on a single routing instance. If you configure NTP without specifying a routing instance, the default routing instance is used. You must configure multiple NTP servers one at a time.

The following examples show NTP configurations that use these values:
  • routing instance = BLUE
  • IP address of the NTP server = 10.0.0.1
The following example shows how to configure NTP for the default routing instance.
vyatta@R1# set system ntp server 10.0.0.1
vyatta@R1# commit
vyatta@R1# run show configuration
system {
        ntp {
                server 10.0.0.1
        }
}

The following example shows the same configuration sequence for the BLUE routing instance.

vyatta@R1# set routing routing-instance BLUE system ntp server 10.0.0.1
vyatta@R1# commit
vyatta@R1# run show configuration
routing {
        routing-instance BLUE {
                system {
                        ntp {
                                server 10.0.0.1
                        }
                }
        }
}
