Configuring entries for NTP for authenticating to Active Directory (AD)

FileStore will not join the AD domain if its clock is excessively out-of-sync with the clock on the AD domain controller. Ensure that Network Time Protocol (NTP) is configured on FileStore, preferably on the same NTP server as the AD domain controller.

To configure NTP on FileStore for authenticating to Active Directory

  1. To set the NTP server on all of the nodes in the cluster, enter the following command:

    System> ntp servername server-name

    where server-name specifies the server name or the IP address you want to set.

    Ensure that the NTP service is enabled with the correct IP address of the NTP server.

    For example:

    System> ntp servername 10.182.128.180
  2. To enable the NTP server on all of the nodes in the cluster, enter the following command:

    System> ntp enable
  3. To display the NTP server on all of the nodes in the cluster, enter the following command:

    System> ntp show
  4. To check the FileStore clock, enter the following command:

    System> clock show
