NTP servers used do not match across cluster members for Fortinet

Vendor

Fortinet

Description

Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if the NTP servers they are using are different.

Remediation Steps

Review the NTP configuration on each device to ensure they match.

How does this work?

This script logs into the FortiGate using SSH and retrieves the NTP servers configuration status information using the output of the "diagnose sys ntp status" command. The output includes the device's servers configuration status as well as information about the NTP configured parameters.

Why is this important?

This script logs into the FortiGate using SSH and retrieves the NTP servers configuration status information using the output of the "diagnose sys ntp status" command. The output includes the device's servers configuration status as well as information about the NTP configured parameters.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator would need to log into the device and use the "diagnose sys ntp status" command to identify if the NTP servers are reachable from the device.
