No NTP servers configured for F5

Vendor

F5

Description

Many odd and complicated outages occur due to lack of clock synchronization between devices. In addition, logs may have the wrong time stamps. Indeni will alert when a device has no NTP servers configured.

Remediation Steps

Configure one or more NTP servers to be used by this device for clock synchronization.

Log into the Web interface and navigate to System -> Configuration -> Device -> NTP. Add the desired NTP servers and click "update".

How does this work?

Indeni logs in over SSH and executes "tmsh -q list sys ntp". The output is then parsed for any ntp server configuration.

Why is this important?

Indeni logs in over SSH and executes "tmsh -q list sys ntp". The output is then parsed for any ntp server configuration.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login to the unit through SSH, enter TMSH and issue the command "list sys ntp" to see the configured NTP servers. This information is also availble through the Web Interface by navigating to "System" -> "Configuration" -> "Device" -> "NTP".
