Before installing Snap Creator, you should ensure that the time on the Snap Creator Server host is in sync with the time on the Agent host. You can do this by synchronizing the time of the hosts with the same Network Time Protocol (NTP) server.

For more information, refer to the following documentation:

  • Clustered Data ONTAP--Clustered Data ONTAP Software Setup Guide for your version of Data ONTAP; in particular, refer to the information regarding verifying the system time and synchronizing the system time across the cluster.
