Views

Any view

Predefined user roles

network-admin

network-operator

Parameters

source interface-type interface-number: Specifies the source interface for sending NTP packets to trace each NTP server from the local device back to the primary NTP server. The source IP address of the NTP packets is the IPv4 address/IPv6 address of the specified source interface. If the IP address of an NTP server is a link-local address, the link-local address of the outgoing interface of NTP packets is used as the source IP address of the NTP packets. If you do not specify this option, the interface that sends the tracing NTP packets acts as the source interface.

Usage guidelines

To trace back to the primary NTP server from the source interface, make sure the source interface and the NTP servers from the local device to the primary NTP server are reachable to each other.

Examples

# Display brief information about each NTP server from the local device back to the primary NTP server.

<Sysname> display ntp-service trace

Server     127.0.0.1

Stratum    3, jitter  0.000, synch distance 0.0000.

Syntax

ntp-service { peer | query | server | synchronization } acl ipv4-acl-number

undo ntp-service { peer | query | server | synchronization } [ acl ipv4-acl-number ]

Default

The right for the peer devices to access the IPv4 NTP services on the local device is peer.

network-admin

Parameters

peer: Allows time requests and NTP control queries (such as alarms, authentication status, and time server information) from a peer device and allows the local device to synchronize itself to a peer device.

query: Allows only NTP control queries from a peer device to the local device.

server: Allows time requests and NTP control queries from a peer device, but does not allow the local device to synchronize itself to a peer device.

synchronization: Allows only time requests from a peer device.

acl ipv4-acl-number: Specifies an IPv4 ACL by its number. The peer devices that match the IPv4 ACL have the access right specified in the command. The ipv4-acl-number argument represents an IPv4 basic ACL number in the range of 2000 to 2999 or an IPv4 advanced ACL number in the range of 3000 to 3999.

Usage guidelines

When the device receives an IPv4 NTP request, it matches the request against the access rights in order from the least restrictive to the most restrictive: peer, server, synchronization, and query.

·     If no IPv4 NTP access control is configured, the peer access right applies.

·     If the IP address of the peer device matches a permit statement in an IPv4 ACL, the access right is granted to the peer device. If a deny statement or no IPv4 ACL is matched, no access right is granted.

·     If no IPv4 ACL is specified for an access right or the IPv4 ACL specified for the access right is not created, the access right is not granted.

·     If none of the IPv4 ACLs specified for the access rights is created, the peer access right applies.

·     If none of the IPv4 ACLs specified for the access rights contains rules, no access right is granted.

The ntp-service acl command provides minimal security for a system running NTP. A more secure method is NTP authentication.

Parameters

keyid: Specifies an authentication key ID in the range of 1 to 4294967295.

authentication-mode: Specifies an authentication algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-1: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-1 algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-256: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-256 algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-384: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-384 algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-512: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-512 algorithm.

·     md5: Specifies the MD5 algorithm.

cipher: Specifies an authentication key in encrypted form.

simple: Specifies an authentication key in plaintext form. For security purposes, the authentication key specified in plaintext form will be stored in encrypted form.

string: Specifies a case-sensitive authentication key. Its plaintext form is a string of 1 to 32 characters. Its encrypted form is a string of 1 to 73 characters.

acl ipv4-acl-number: Specifies an IPv4 basic ACL by its number in the range of 2000 to 2999. Only the devices permitted by the ACL can use the key ID for authentication.

ipv6 acl ipv6-acl-number: Specifies an IPv6 basic ACL by its number in the range of 2000 to 2999. Only the devices permitted by the ACL can use the key ID for authentication.

Usage guidelines

In a network where there is a high security demand, the NTP authentication feature must be enabled for a system running NTP. This feature enhances the network security by using client-server key authentication, which prohibits a client from synchronizing to a device that has failed the authentication.

The key ID in the message from the peer device identifies the key used for authentication. The acl ipv4-acl-number or acl ipv6-acl-number option is used to identify the peer device that can use the key ID.

·     The device uses the acl ipv4-acl-number or acl ipv6-acl-number option to identify the peer device that can use the key ID only when an NTP session for the peer device is required to be established or after the NTP session has been established.

·     If the specified IPv4 or IPv6 ACL does not exist, any device can use the key ID for authentication.

·     If the specified IPv4 or IPv6 ACL does not contain any rules, no device can use the key ID for authentication.

To ensure a successful NTP authentication, configure the same key ID, authentication algorithm, and key on the time server and client.

After you specify an NTP authentication key, use the ntp-service reliable authentication-keyid command to configure the key as a trusted key. The key automatically changes to untrusted after you delete the key. In this case, you do not need to execute the undo ntp-service reliable authentication-keyid command.

The security strength of the five algorithms, in descending order, is HMAC-SHA-512, HMAC-SHA-384, HMAC-SHA-256, HMAC-SHA-1, and MD5.

You can set a maximum of 128 authentication keys by executing the command.

Examples

# Set a plaintext MD5 authentication key, with the key ID of 10 and key value of BetterKey.

network-admin

Parameters

peer: Allows time requests and NTP control queries (such as alarms, authentication status, and time server information) and allows the local device to synchronize itself to a peer device.

query: Allows only NTP control queries from a peer device to the local device.

server: Allows time requests and NTP control queries, but does not allow the local device to synchronize itself to a peer device.

synchronization: Allows only time requests from a system whose address passes the access list criteria.

ipv6-acl-number: Specifies an IPv6 ACL by its number. The peer devices that match the IPv6 ACL have the access right specified in the command. The ipv6-acl-number argument represents a basic IPv6 ACL number in the range of 2000 to 2999 or an advanced IPv6 ACL number in the range of 3000 to 3999.

Usage guidelines

When the device receives an IPv6 NTP request, it matches the request against the access rights in order from the least restrictive to the most restrictive: peer, server, synchronization, and query.

·     If no IPv6 NTP access control is configured, the peer access right applies.

·     If the IP address of the peer device matches a permit statement in an IPv6 ACL, the access right is granted to the peer device. If a deny statement or no IPv6 ACL is matched, no access right is granted.

·     If no IPv6 ACL is specified for an access right or the IPv6 ACL specified for the access right is not created, the access right is not granted.

·     If none of the IPv6 ACLs specified for the access rights is created, the peer access right applies.

·     If none of the IPv6 ACLs specified for the access rights contains rules, no access right is granted.

The ntp-service ipv6 acl command provides a minimum security method. NTP authentication is more secure.

Use undo ntp-service ipv6 source to restore the default.

Syntax

Default

No source interface is specified for IPv6 NTP messages. The device automatically selects the source IP address for IPv6 NTP messages. For more information, see RFC 3484.

Views

System view

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

interface-type interface-number: Specifies an interface by its type and number.

Usage guidelines

If you specify a source interface for IPv6 NTP messages, the device uses the IPv6 address of the source interface as the source address to send IPv6 NTP messages. Consequently, the destination address of the IPv6 NTP response messages is the address of the source interface.

When the device responds to an IPv6 NTP request, the source IPv6 address of the NTP response is always the IPv6 address of the interface that has received the IPv6 NTP request.

If you do not want the IPv6 address of an interface on the local device to become the destination address for response messages, use the command to specify another interface as the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages.

The source interface for IPv6 NTP messages can also be specified in the following ways:

·     In NTP client/server mode, if you have specified the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages in the ntp-service ipv6 unicast-server command, the specified interface acts as the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages.

·     In NTP symmetric active/passive mode, if you have specified the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages in the ntp-service ipv6 unicast-peer command, the specified interface acts as the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages.

·     In NTP multicast mode, if you have configured the ntp-service ipv6 multicast-server command on an interface, the interface acts as the source interface for NTP multicast messages.

If the specified source interface is down, the device does not send IPv6 NTP messages.

Examples

# Specify the source interface of IPv6 NTP messages as VLAN-interface 1.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] ntp-service ipv6 source vlan-interface 1

ntp-service ipv6 unicast-peer

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

peer-name: Specifies a symmetric-passive peer by its host name, a case-insensitive string of 1 to 253 characters.

ipv6-address: Specifies a symmetric-passive peer by its IPv6 address. It must be a unicast address, rather than a multicast address.

vpn-instance vpn-instance-name: Specifies the MPLS L3VPN instance to which the symmetric-passive peer belongs. The vpn-instance-name argument is a case-sensitive string of 1 to 31 characters. If the symmetric-passive peer is on the public network, do not specify this option.

authentication-keyid keyid: Specifies the key ID to be used for sending NTP messages to the peer. The value range for the keyid argument is 1 to 4294967295. If you do not specify this option, the local device and the peer do not authenticate each other.

maxpoll maxpoll-interval: Specifies the maximum polling interval. The value range for the maxpoll-interval argument is 4 to 17, to which base 2 is raised to get the interval in seconds. The maximum polling interval is in the range of 24 to 217 (16 to 131072) seconds. The default value for the maxpoll-interval argument is 6 and the default maximum polling interval is 26 (64) seconds.

minpoll minpoll-interval: Specifies the minimum polling interval. The value range for the minpoll-interval argument is 4 to 17, to which base 2 is raised to get the interval in seconds. The minimum polling interval is in the range of 24 to 217 (16 to 131072) seconds. The default value for the minpoll-interval argument is 6 and the default minimum polling interval is 26 (64) seconds.

priority: Specifies the peer specified by ipv6-address or peer-name as the first choice under the same condition.

source interface-type interface-number: Specifies the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages. If the specified passive peer address is not a link local address, the source IPv6 address for IPv6 NTP messages sent by the local device is the IPv6 address of the specified source interface. If the specified passive peer address is a link local address, the IPv6 NTP messages are sent from the specified source interface, and the source address of the messages is the link local address of the interface. The interface-type interface-number argument represents the interface type and number. If you do not specify an interface, the device automatically selects the source IPv6 address of IPv6 NTP messages. For more information, see RFC 3484.

Usage guidelines

When you specify an IPv6 passive peer for the device, the device and its IPv6 passive peer can be synchronized to each other. If their clocks are in synchronized state, the clock with a high stratum level is synchronized to the clock with a lower stratum level.

To synchronize the PE to a PE or CE in a VPN instance, provide the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the command.

If you include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the undo ntp-service ipv6 unicast-peer command, the command removes the symmetric-passive peer in the specified VPN instance. If you do not include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the command, the command removes the symmetric-passive peer on the public network.

If the specified IPv6 address of the passive peer is a link local address, you must specify the source interface for NTP messages and cannot specify a VPN instance for the passive peer.

After you specify an IPv6 symmetric-passive peer for a device, the device polls and synchronize its time with the peer device at the minimum polling interval. If the time discrepancy between the two remains in the acceptable range, the system gradually increases the polling interval until the maximum polling interval is reached. If the time discrepancy exceeds the acceptable range repeatedly, the polling interval decreases gradually.

The polling interval configuration takes effect when the next polling starts.

Examples

# Specify the device with the IPv6 address of 2001::1 as the symmetric-passive peer of the device, and specify the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages as VLAN-interface 1.

priority: Specifies this NTP server as the first choice under the same condition.

source interface-type interface-number: Specifies the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages. If the specified IPv6 NTP server address is not a link local address, the source IPv6 address for IPv6 NTP messages sent by the local device to the NTP server is the IPv6 address of the specified source interface. If the specified IPv6 NTP server address is a link local address, the IPv6 NTP messages are sent from the specified source interface, and the source address of the messages is the link local address of the interface. The interface-type interface-number argument represents the interface type and number. If you do not specify an interface, the device automatically selects the source IPv6 address of IPv6 NTP messages. For more information, see RFC 3484.

Usage guidelines

When you specify an IPv6 NTP server for the device, the device is synchronized to the IPv6 NTP server, but the IPv6 NTP server is not synchronized to the device.

To synchronize the PE to a PE or CE in a VPN instance, specify the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the command.

If you include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the undo ntp-service unicast-server command, the command removes the NTP server in the specified VPN. If you do not include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the command, the command removes the NTP server on the public network.

If the specified IPv6 address of the NTP server is a link local address, you must specify the source interface for NTP messages and cannot specify a VPN instance for the NTP server.

After you specify an IPv6 NTP server for a device, the device polls and synchronizes its time with the server at the minimum polling interval. If the time discrepancy between the two remains in the acceptable range, the system gradually increases the polling interval until the maximum polling interval is reached. If the time discrepancy exceeds the acceptable range repeatedly, the polling interval decreases gradually.

The polling interval configuration takes effect when the next polling starts.

Parameters

ip-address: Specifies a multicast IP address. The default is 224.0.1.1. A multicast server and client must be configured with the same multicast IP address.

authentication-keyid keyid: Specifies the key ID to be used for sending multicast messages to multicast clients. The value range for the keyid argument is 1 to 4294967295. If you do not specify this option, the local device cannot synchronize multicast clients enabled with NTP authentication.

ttl ttl-number: Specifies the TTL of NTP multicast messages. The value range for the ttl-number argument is 1 to 255. The default value is 16.

version number: Specifies the NTP version. The value range for the number argument is 1 to 4. The default value is 4.

Usage guidelines

After you configure the command, the device periodically sends NTP messages to the specified multicast address.

If you have configured the device to operate in multicast server mode on an interface with the command, do not add the interface to any aggregate group. To add the interface to an aggregate group, remove the configuration of the command.

Examples

# Configure the device to operate in multicast server mode and send NTP multicast messages on VLAN-interface 1 to the multicast address 224.0.1.1, using key 4 for encryption. Set the NTP version to 4.

network-admin

Parameters

ip-address: IP address of the local clock, 127.127.1.u, where u is the NTP process ID in the range of 0 to 3. The default value is 127.127.1.0.

stratum: Stratum level of the local clock, in the range of 1 to 15. The default value is 8. A lower stratum level represents higher clock accuracy.

Usage guidelines

Typically an NTP server that gets its time from an authoritative time source, such as an atomic clock has stratum 1 and operates as the primary time server to provide time synchronization for other devices in the network. The accuracy of each server is the stratum, with the topmost level (primary servers) assigned as one and each level downwards (secondary servers) in the hierarchy assigned as one greater than the preceding level.

If the devices in a network cannot synchronize to an authoritative time source, you can perform the following tasks:

·     Select a device that has a relatively accurate clock from the network.

·     Use the local clock of the device as the reference clock to synchronize other devices in the network.

Use the command with caution to avoid time errors. As a best practice, set the local clock time to a correct value before you execute the command.

Examples

# Specify the local clock as the reference source, with stratum level 2.

Parameters

keyid: Specifies an authentication key by its ID in the range of 1 to 4294967295.

Usage guidelines

When NTP authentication is enabled, a client can be synchronized only to a server that can provide a trusted authentication key.

Before you use the command, make sure NTP authentication is enabled and an authentication key is configured. The key automatically changes to untrusted after you delete the key. In this case, you do not need to execute the undo ntp-service reliable authentication-keyid command.

You can set a maximum of 128 keys by executing the command.

Examples

# Enable NTP authentication, specify the MD5 algorithm, with the key ID of 37 and key value of BetterKey.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] ntp-service authentication enable

Use undo ntp-service source to restore the default.

Syntax

ntp-service source { interface-type interface-number | ipv4-address }

undo ntp-service source

Default

No source IPv4 address is specified for NTP messages. The device performs the following operations:

·     Searches the routing table for the outbound interface of NTP messages.

·     Uses the primary IPv4 address of the outbound interface as the source IPv4 address for NTP messages.

Views

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

interface-type interface-number: Specifies an interface by its type and number. If you specify a source interface for NTP messages, the device uses the primary IPv4 address of the specified source interface as the source address to send NTP messages. The receiving device uses this address as the destination address of the NTP response message.

ip-address: Specifies the source IPv4 address for NTP messages.

Usage guidelines

When the device responds to an NTP request, the source IP address of the NTP response is always the IP address of the interface that has received the NTP request.

If you have specified the source interface for NTP messages in the ntp-service unicast-server or ntp-service unicast-peer command, the IPv4 address of the specified interface is used as the source IPv4 address for NTP messages.

If you have configured the ntp-service broadcast-server or ntp-service multicast-server command in an interface view, the IPv4 address of the interface is used as the source IPv4 address for broadcast or multicast NTP messages.

If the specified source interface is down, the device does not send NTP messages.

Examples

# Specify the IP address of VLAN-interface 1 as the source IPv4 address for NTP messages.

undo ntp-service time-offset-threshold

Default

No NTP time-offset thresholds are set for log and trap outputs.

Views

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

log log-threshold: Specifies the NTP time-offset threshold for log output. The value range for the log-threshold argument is 128 to 60000, in milliseconds.

trap trap-threshold: Specifies the NTP time-offset threshold for trap output. The value range for the trap-threshold argument is 128 to 60000, in milliseconds.

Usage guidelines

By default, the system synchronizes the NTP client's time to the server and outputs a log and a trap when the time offset exceeds 128 ms for multiple times.

After you set the thresholds, the system synchronizes the client's time to the server when the time offset exceeds 128 ms for multiple times, but outputs logs and traps only when the time offset exceeds the specified thresholds, respectively.

Examples

# Set the NTP time-offset thresholds for log and trap outputs to 500 ms and 600 ms, respectively.

Use undo ntp-service unicast-peer to remove the symmetric-passive peer specified for the device.

Syntax

ntp-service unicast-peer { peer-name | ip-address } [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ] [ authentication-keyid keyid | maxpoll maxpoll-interval | minpoll minpoll-interval | priority | source interface-type interface-number | version number ] *

undo ntp-service unicast-peer { peer-name | ip-address } [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ]

Default

Views

System view

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

peer-name: Specifies a symmetric-passive peer by its host name, a case-insensitive string of 1 to 253 characters.

ip-address: Specifies a symmetric-passive peer by its IP address. It must be a unicast address, rather than a broadcast address, a multicast address, or the IP address of the local clock.

vpn-instance vpn-instance-name: Specifies the MPLS L3VPN instance to which the symmetric-passive peer belongs. The vpn-instance-name argument is a case-sensitive string of 1 to 31 characters. If the symmetric-passive peer is on the public network, do not specify this option.

authentication-keyid keyid: Specifies the key ID to be used for sending NTP messages to the peer. The value range for the keyid argument is 1 to 4294967295. If you do not specify this option, the local device and the peer do not authenticate each other.

maxpoll maxpoll-interval: Specifies the maximum polling interval. The value range for the maxpoll-interval argument is 4 to 17, to which base 2 is raised to get the interval in seconds. The maximum polling interval is in the range of 24 to 217 (16 to 131072) seconds. The default value for the maxpoll-interval argument is 6 and the default maximum polling interval is 26 (64) seconds.

minpoll minpoll-interval: Specifies the minimum polling interval. The value range for the minpoll-interval argument is 4 to 17, to which base 2 is raised to get the interval in seconds. The minimum polling interval is in the range of 24 to 217 (16 to 131072) seconds. The default value for the minpoll-interval argument is 6 and the default minimum polling interval is 26 (64) seconds.

priority: Specifies the peer specified by ip-address or peer-name as the first choice under the same condition.

source interface-type interface-number: Specifies the source interface for NTP messages. In an NTP message the local device sends to its peer, the source IP address is the primary IP address of this interface. The interface-type interface-number argument represents the interface type and number. If you do not specify this option, the device searches the routing table for the outgoing interface and uses the primary IP address of the outgoing interface as the source IP address of the NTP messages.

version number: Specifies the NTP version. The value range for the number argument is 1 to 4. The default value is 4.

Usage guidelines

When you specify a passive peer for the device, the device and its passive peer can be synchronized to each other. If their clocks are in synchronized state, the clock with a high stratum level is synchronized to the clock with a lower stratum level.

To synchronize the PE to a PE or CE in a VPN instance, provide vpn-instance vpn-instance-name in your command.

If you include vpn-instance vpn-instance-name in the undo ntp-service unicast-peer command, the command removes the symmetric-passive peer in the specified VPN instance. If you do not include vpn-instance vpn-instance-name in the command, the command removes the symmetric-passive peer on the public network.

After you specify a symmetric-passive peer for a device, the device polls and synchronizes its time with the peer device at the minimum polling interval. If the time discrepancy between the two remains in the acceptable range, the system gradually increases the polling interval until the maximum polling interval is reached. If the time discrepancy exceeds the acceptable range repeatedly, the polling interval decreases gradually.

The polling interval configuration takes effect when the next polling starts.

Examples

# Specify the device with the IP address of 10.1.1.1 as the symmetric-passive peer of the device, and configure the device to run NTP version 4. Specify the source interface of NTP messages as VLAN-interface 1.

Parameters

server-name: Specifies an NTP server by its host name, a case-insensitive string of 1 to 253 characters.

ip-address: Specifies an NTP server by its IP address. It must be a unicast address, rather than a broadcast address, a multicast address, or the IP address of the local clock.

vpn-instance vpn-instance-name: Specifies the MPLS L3VPN instance to which the NTP server belongs. The vpn-instance-name argument is a case-sensitive string of 1 to 31 characters. If the NTP server is on the public network, do not specify this option.

authentication-keyid keyid: Specifies the key ID to be used for sending NTP messages to the NTP server. The value range for the keyid argument is 1 to 4294967295. If you do not specify this option, the local device and NTP server do not authenticate each other.

maxpoll maxpoll-interval: Specifies the maximum polling interval. The value range for the maxpoll-interval argument is 4 to 17, to which base 2 is raised to get the interval in seconds. The maximum polling interval is in the range of 24 to 217 (16 to 131072) seconds. The default value for the maxpoll-interval argument is 6 and the default maximum polling interval is 26 (64) seconds.

minpoll minpoll-interval: Specifies the minimum polling interval. The value range for the minpoll-interval argument is 4 to 17, to which base 2 is raised to get the interval in seconds. The minimum polling interval is in the range of 24 to 217 (16 to 131072) seconds. The default value for the minpoll-interval argument is 6 and the default minimum polling interval is 26 (64) seconds.

priority: Specifies this NTP server as the first choice under the same condition.

source interface-type interface-number: Specifies the source interface for NTP messages. For an NTP message the local device sends to the NTP server, the source IP address is the primary IP address of this interface. The interface-type interface-number argument represents the interface type and number. If you do not specify this option, the device searches the routing table for the outgoing interface and uses the primary IP address of the outgoing interface as the source IP address of the NTP messages.

version number: Specifies the NTP version. The value range for the number argument is 1 to 4. The default value is 4.

Usage guidelines

When you specify an NTP server for the device, the device is synchronized to the NTP server, but the NTP server is not synchronized to the device.

To synchronize the PE to a PE or CE in a VPN instance, provide vpn-instance vpn-instance-name in your command.

If you include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the undo ntp-service unicast-server command, the command removes the NTP server in the specified VPN instance. If you do not include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the command, the command removes the NTP server on the public network.

After you specify an NTP server for a device, the device polls and synchronizes its time with the server at the minimum polling interval. If the time discrepancy between the two remains in the acceptable range, the system gradually increases the polling interval until the maximum polling interval is reached. If the time discrepancy exceeds the acceptable range repeatedly, the polling interval decreases gradually.

The polling interval configuration takes effect when the next polling starts.

authentication-mode: Specifies an authentication algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-1: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-1 algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-256: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-256 algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-384: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-384 algorithm.

·     hmac-sha-512: Specifies the HMAC-SHA-512 algorithm.

·     md5: Specifies the MD5 algorithm.

cipher: Specifies an authentication key in encrypted form.

simple: Specifies an authentication key in plaintext form. For security purposes, the authentication key specified in plaintext form will be stored in encrypted form.

string: Specifies a case-sensitive authentication key. Its plaintext form is a string of 1 to 32 characters. Its encrypted form is a string of 1 to 73 characters.

acl ipv4-acl-number: Specifies an IPv4 basic ACL by its number in the range of 2000 to 2999. Only the devices permitted by the ACL can use the key ID for authentication.

ipv6 acl ipv6-acl-number: Specifies an IPv6 basic ACL by its number in the range of 2000 to 2999. Only the devices permitted by the ACL can use the key ID for authentication.

Usage guidelines

You need to enable SNTP authentication in networks that require time synchronization security to make sure SNTP clients are synchronized only to authenticated NTP servers.

The key ID in the message from the peer device identifies the key used for authentication. The acl ipv4-acl-number or acl ipv6-acl-number option is used to identify the peer device that can use the key ID.

·     The device uses the acl ipv4-acl-number or acl ipv6-acl-number option to identify the peer device that can use the key ID only when an SNTP session for the peer device is required to be established or after the SNTP session has been established.

·     If the specified IPv4 or IPv6 ACL does not exist, any device can use the key ID for authentication.

·     If the specified IPv4 or IPv6 ACL does not contain any rules, no device can use the key ID for authentication.

To ensure a successful authentication, configure the same key ID, authentication algorithm, and key on the time server and client.

After you configure an SNTP authentication key, use the sntp reliable authentication-keyid command to set it as a trusted key. The key automatically changes to untrusted after you delete the key. In this case, you do not need to execute the undo sntp-service reliable authentication-keyid command.

The security strength of the five algorithms, in descending order, is HMAC-SHA-512, HMAC-SHA-384, HMAC-SHA-256, HMAC-SHA-1, and MD5.

You can set a maximum of 128 authentication keys by executing the command.

Parameters

server-name: Specifies an NTP server by its host name, a case-insensitive string of 1 to 253 characters.

ipv6-address: Specifies an NTP server by its IPv6 address.

vpn-instance vpn-instance-name: Specifies MPLS L3VPN instance to which the NTP server belongs. The vpn-instance-name argument is a case-sensitive string of 1 to 31 characters. If the NTP server is on the public network, do not specify this option.

authentication-keyid keyid: Specifies the key ID to be used for sending NTP messages to the NTP server. The value range for the keyid argument is 1 to 4294967295. If you do not specify this option, the local device and NTP server do not authenticate each other.

source interface-type interface-number: Specifies the source interface for IPv6 NTP messages. If the specified IPv6 NTP server address is not a link local address, the source IPv6 address for IPv6 NTP messages sent by the local device to the NTP server is the IPv6 address of the specified source interface. If the specified IPv6 NTP server address is a link local address, the IPv6 NTP messages are sent from the specified source interface, and the source address of the messages is the link local address of the interface. The interface-type interface-number argument represents the interface type and number. If you do not specify an interface, the device automatically selects the source IPv6 address of IPv6 NTP messages. For more information, see RFC 3484.

Usage guidelines

When you specify an IPv6 NTP server for the device, the device is synchronized to the NTP server, but the NTP server is not synchronized to the device.

To synchronize the PE to a PE or CE in a VPN instance, provide the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in your command.

If you include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the undo ntp-service unicast-server command, the command removes the NTP server in the specified VPN instance. If you do not include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the command, the command removes the NTP server on the public network.

If the specified IPv6 address of the NTP server is a link local address, you must specify the source interface for NTP messages and cannot specify a VPN instance for the NTP server.

vpn-instance vpn-instance-name: Specifies the MPLS L3VPN instance VPN to which the NTP server belongs. The vpn-instance-name argument is a case-sensitive string of 1 to 31 characters. If the NTP server is on the public network, do not specify this option.

authentication-keyid keyid: Specifies the key ID to be used for sending NTP messages to the NTP server. The value range for the keyid argument is 1 to 4294967295. If you do not specify this option, the local device and NTP server do not authenticate each other.

source interface-type interface-number: Specifies the source interface for NTP messages. In an NTP message the local device sends to the NTP server, the source IP address is the primary IP address of this interface. The interface-type interface-number argument represents the interface type and number.

version number: Specifies the NTP version. The value range for the number argument is 1 to 4. The default value is 4.

Usage guidelines

When you specify an NTP server for the device, the device is synchronized to the NTP server, but the NTP server is not synchronized to the device.

To synchronize the PE to a PE or CE in a VPN instance, provide vpn-instance vpn-instance-name in your command.

If you include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the undo ntp-service unicast-server command, the command removes the NTP server in the specified VPN instance. If you do not include the vpn-instance vpn-instance-name option in the command, the command removes the NTP server on the public network.

Examples

# Specify NTP server 10.1.1.1 for the device, and configure the device to run NTP version 4.

<Sysname> system-view

[Sysname] sntp unicast-server 10.1.1.1 version 4
