DescriptionIndeni can verify that certain NTP servers are configured on a specific device.
Remediation StepsUpdate the configuration of the device to match the requirement.
How does this work?Using the "/cfg/sys/ntp/cur/" command in the CLI, Indeni will verify that ntp servers have been configured and that the current status of any existing servers is ok.
Why is this important?Not having an NTP server configured could make the clock slowly drift, which makes log entries and other information harder to summarize between devices. If the clock drifts very far out, there could also be issues with validating certificates.
Without Indeni how would you find this?An administrator could login to the unit through SSH and issue the command "/cfg/sys/ntp/cur/" to see the configured ntp servers.
