Configuring SNTP

To obtain time information from the time server on the network, configure Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP). When SNTP is configured, the time server is checked at specified intervals to adjust the time and maintain the correct time on the machine.
The machine supports both an NTP server (NTPv3) and SNTP server (SNTPv3 and v4).
Configure these settings using Remote UI from a computer. You cannot use the operation panel to configure the settings.
Administrator privileges are required. The machine must be restarted to apply the settings.
Required Preparations
The time is adjusted based on the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), so specify the time zone setting. Setting the Date and Time
Prepare the IP address of the NTP or SNTP server and keep it close by.
1
Log in to Remote UI in System Manager Mode. Starting Remote UI
2
On the Portal page of Remote UI, click [Settings/Registration]. Portal Page of Remote UI
3
Click [Network Settings] [SNTP Settings] [Edit].
The [Edit SNTP Settings] screen is displayed.
4
Select the [Use SNTP] checkbox.

In [NTP Server Name], enter the IP address of the NTP/SNTP server.
When using a DNS server, you can enter the host name or FQDN instead of the IP address.
Input example:
ntp.example.com
6
In [Polling Interval], enter the interval at which to check the server and adjust the time.
7
Click [OK].
8
Restart the machine. Restarting the Machine
The settings are applied.
Testing Communication with the NTP or SNTP Server
Test communication using the following procedure: If the machine is correctly communicating with the server, [OK] appears in [NTP Server Check Result].
Log in to Remote UI in System Manager Mode click [Settings/Registration] [Network Settings] [SNTP Settings] [Check NTP Server].
* This tests the communication status and does not adjust the time.
