NTP Sync 10.1.6 PA-220

L1 Bithead

Hi all,

I'm getting this NTP status message.

I'm quite sure it did initially sync but then reverts to this state.

What exactly does "rejected" mean? The NTP server was reachable but has it been knocked back for some reason.

 

NTP state:

NTP not synched, using local clock

NTP server: xxxx

status: rejected

reachable: yes

authentication-type: none

 

Thanks,

Clinton

Hello,

Sounds like you ate using authenticated NTP? If yes, I would check with the NTP server owner to make sure you have the correct credentials.

Regards,

Not authenticated no, just a windows domain controller.

And on the PAN none of the authentication for NTP is configured?

Correct

Interesting. Does the traffic out of the management port flow back through the PAN to get to the NTP server? I'm really out of thoughts. Perhaps a support case.

I got it syncing eventually with just one host.

Then all of sudden it syncs. Syncs many times for some time. Then goes back to being rejected.

Hi Brooks,

Could you please share the fix you applied to make it as "synched". I also have same issue.

Thanks

This issue is fixed after decreasing the LocalClockDispersion value on the Windows NTP server

 

 

  1. Navigate to the following Windows registry key:
    SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config\LocalClockDispersion
     
  2. Set the value to 0.
  3. Restart the W32time service on Windows with the following command:
    net stop w32time
    net start w32time
