add ntp_server general

server=? NTP server address.

The value can be a domain name or an IPv4 or IPv6 address.

Usage Guidelines

  • Two NTP servers can be configured for a system. Ensure that the time of the two NTP servers is consistent. If one server fails, you can synchronize the time from the other server to the faulty one.
  • If the time of the two servers is inconsistent, system time-hopping may occur, adversely affecting functions related to user management, alarms, and licenses.


Add the server whose IP address is as a time synchronization server.

admin:/>add ntp_server general server=
WARNING: You are about to add the NTP server. This operation may make the time synchronization function malfunction if an NTP server already exists in the system and the time of the two NTP servers is different.
Suggestion: If an NTP server already exists in the system, ensure that the time of the two NTP servers is the same.
