It is not possible to disable NTP from command line , either the users have to open SEP client every time and from the GUI they can disable it .

Not possible from DOS commands too the feature is not supported as it is a security product.

Here's the command to disable NTP:

smc -disable -ntp

and to reenable

smc -enable -ntp

If the SEP client UI is password protected:

smc -disable -ntp -p <password>

SOLUTION

It works !!

Nevers seen this command libne before !

Is there a webpage with all options of the smc.exe documented ?

 

Thanks a lot !

Not sure if a public webpage exist for the commands, but on SEPM's Help can you search for "Running Windwos commands for the client service" and that help page will give you a list of possible SMC commands.

Hope this helps.
