Using NTP for automatic synchronization

To use NTP for automatic synchronization, you must create associations with the NTP servers. To create an association with an NTP server, use the system ntp server command and specify the IP address of the server.

The following table shows how to configure two NTP servers: one at 172.16.0.42 and one at 10.10.40.42.

To specify NTP servers, perform the following steps in configuration mode.
