Contributors netapp-mwallis Download PDF of this page

You can use the SetNtpInfo method to configure NTP on cluster nodes. The values you set with this interface apply to all nodes in the cluster. If an NTP broadcast server periodically broadcasts time information on your network, you can optionally configure nodes as broadcast clients.

Note SolidFire Enterprise SDS does not support this method. If you use this method on a SolidFire eSDS system, the method will return an error.

Parameters
