Objectives

Part 1: Build the Network, Configure Basic Device Settings and Routing

Part 2: Configure NTP in a P2P Network

Part 3: Configure NTP in a Multiaccess Broadcast Network

Background / Scenario

Many router and switch features require an accurate time source to operate efficiently. Synchronized timestamps are important for troubleshooting purposes, Syslog and SNMP event reporting, and for the correlation of security-based events across multiple devices.

Some devices use a software clock that is reset whenever the device is rebooted. Therefore, the date and time would have to be manually re-entered every time the device is restarted. Other devices use a hardware clock that can retain the time even when restarted. Regardless, each device clock would never really be synchronized with other devices. A better, scalable solution is required.

NTP is a scalable solution to synchronize the time on multiple network devices. NTP creates a hierarchical architecture using authoritative time sources to synchronize clients. An NTP client occasionally polls an NTP server and multiple NTP messages increase accuracy.

Note: NTP uses UDP port 123 and is documented in RFC 1305. Current versions include NTPv3 and NTPv4.

NTP is commonly implemented in three ways depending on the network type:

  • Point-to-point (P2P) – Consists of an NTP server (master) and NTP client.
  • Broadcast – Consists of an NTP server broadcasting (i.e., multicasting) to listening NTP broadcast clients. The server is configured using the ntp broadcast interface command and clients are configured using the ntp broadcast client interface command.
  • NTP Peers – Used in larger redundant topologies for backup purposes where two NTP servers are also peers to query different external time sources. The peers establish a client server relationship with each other and try to offer their clock settings to each other. NTP peers are configured using the ntp peer peer-ip-address global config command.

In this lab, you will configure NTP as follows:

  • R3 will be the designated authoritative time source.
  • R2 and R3 will establish a P2P client-server NTP connection while R1 and R2 will establish a P2P client-server NTP connection.
  • R1 will be configured as an NTP broadcast server to the NTP broadcast clients (i.e., A1, D1, and D2).

Note: This lab is an exercise in developing, deploying, and verifying how NTP operates and does not reflect networking best practices.

Note: The routers used with this CCNP hands-on lab are Cisco 4221and the two Layer 3 switches are Catalyst 3650 switches. Other routers and Layer 3 switches and Cisco IOS versions can be used. Depending on the model and Cisco IOS version, the commands available and the output produced might vary from what is shown in the labs.

Note: Ensure that the routers and switches have been erased and have no startup configurations. If you are unsure contact your instructor.

Answers Note: Refer to the Answers Lab Manual for the procedures to initialize and reload devices.

  1. Save the running configuration to startup-config.

Close configuration window

Step 5:On D1, verify end-to-end connectivity and time.

  1. From D1, ping the R3 IP address (i.e., 172.16.1.2).

Open configuration window

D1# ping 172.16.1.2

Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 172.16.1.2, timeout is 2 seconds:

!!!!!

Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/8 ms

There is end-to-end connectivity up to R3.

  1. Verify the time on D1 using the show clock command.

D1# show clock

*00:27:00.528 UTC Mon Mar 1 1993

Notice the time reference on D1 is not accurate.

Close configuration window

Step 6:On D2, verify end-to-end connectivity and time.

  1. From D2, ping the R3 IP address (i.e., 172.16.1.2).

Open configuration window

D2# ping 172.16.1.2

Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 172.16.1.2, timeout is 2 seconds:

!!!!!

Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/8 ms

There is end-to-end connectivity up to R3.

  1. Verify the time on D2 using the show clock command.

D2# show clock

*00:29:25.759 UTC Mon Mar 1 1993

The time on D2 is also not accurate.

Close configuration window

Step 7:On A1, R1 and R2, verify end-to-end connectivity and time.

Open configuration window

  1. From A1, R1, and R2 verify that they have connectivity to R3.
  2. Verify their time.

Close configuration window

Part 2:Configure NTP in a P2P Network

In this part, NTP will be configured for P2P. Specifically, R3 will be the authoritative server for R2, and R2 will be the server for R1.

The device selected as the authoritative time server is configured using the ntp master stratum global configuration command. The stratum variable identifies how many hops the server is away from an atomic time source.

The NTP client identifies the NTP server to associate with using the ntp server server-ip-address [prefer] [source interface-id] global configuration command. For redundancy purposes, multiple NTP servers can be specified using separate ntp server command. Use the prefer option to peer with a specific NTP server. Optionally, the source interface can be configured to stipulate the source IP address for queries for that server.

Step 1:On R3, configure the system clock.

In this lab, R3 is configured as the authoritative time source.

  1. Verify the system clock on R3.

Open configuration window

R3# show clock

*21:45:50.081 UTC Mon Jan 20 2020

The time source is not accurate and must therefore be corrected before enabling NTP.

  1. On R3, manually reconfigure the system clock using the clock set privileged EXEC mode command. The time you set should be the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) value. For example, the clock is set assuming that the current UTC is 7:25 pm (i.e., 19:25).

R3# clock set ?

hh:mm:ssCurrent Time

R3# clock set 19:25:00 ?

<1-31>Day of the month

MONTHMonth of the year

R3# clock set 19:25:00 20 ?

R3# clock set 19:25:00 20 Jan 2020

R3#

*Jan 20 19:25:00.000: %SYS-6-CLOCKUPDATE: System clock has been updated from 21:49:48 UTC Mon Jan 20 2020 to 19:25:00 UTC Mon Jan 20 2020, configured from console by console.

Jan 20 19:25:00.001: %PKI-6-AUTHORITATIVE_CLOCK: The system clock has been set.

An informational message is generated stating that the system clock has been altered on the console.

  1. Verify that the system clock has been updated.

R3# show clock

19:25:44.437 UTC Mon Jan 20 2020

Note: The default time zone is UTC.

  1. Next, we will change the default time zone from UTC to Eastern Standard Time (EST) by specifying a -5 hours-offset between UTC and EST using the clock timezone zone hours-offset global configuration command.

Note: Time zones have a set number of offset hours that must be specified to adjust from UTC.

R3# config t

R3(config)# clock timezone EST -5

R3(config)#

Jan 20 19:27:48.201: %SYS-6-CLOCKUPDATE: System clock has been updated from 19:27:48 UTC Mon Jan 20 2020 to 14:27:48 EST Mon Jan 20 2020, configured from console by console.

R3(config)# exit

  1. Verify how the system clock has been updated using the detail keyword.

R3# show clock detail

14:28:22.988 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is user configuration

Notice how the time and time zone have changed to reflect the configured command. It also states how the time was adjusted.

Note: Other time related commands that can be configured include the clock summer-time command to automatically switch between standard time and daylight savings time.

Step 2:Configure R3 to be the authoritative time source.

Setting the clocks manually is not an accurate method of tracking time and events in networks. Manually configuring the time on all network devices is also not a scalable solution.

NTP enables network devices to poll an authoritative time source to ensure that all network devices are synchronized.

Time accuracy is commonly sourced from an external source, such as an atomic clock or a GPS receiver. Another option is to configure a device to be an authoritative time source. However, this command should only be used if you do not have a reliable external reference clock.

In this lab, R3 will be configured as an authoritative time source using the ntp master stratum command. The stratum number should be configured with a high number if a more reliable NTP source becomes available. When multiple NTP servers are specified, an NTPenabled client automatically chooses the server with the lowest stratum number as its time source.

Note: The lower the stratum number the more trustworthy the accuracy of the time source.

  1. Configure R3 as the authoritative time source with a stratum of 10 using the ntp master command.

R3(config)# ntp master ?

<1-15>Stratum number

<cr><cr>

R3(config)# ntp master 10

R3(config)# exit

  1. Verify if there are any NTP clients or peers on the network using the show ntp associations command.

R3# show ntp associations

addressref clockstwhenpoll reachdelayoffsetdisp

*~127.127.1.1.LOCL.9141610.0000.000 7937.9

* sys.peer, # selected, + candidate, – outlyer, x falseticker, ~ configured

There are no other NTP clients. The address 127.127.1.1 is the loopback IP address of R3 that was assigned by the ntp master command. The reference clock is LOCL (i.e., local) with a stratum number of 9 which is one less than the configured number of 10.

  1. Verify the status of NTP using the show ntp status command.

R3# show ntp status

Clock is synchronized, stratum 10, reference is 127.127.1.1

nominal freq is 250.0000 Hz, actual freq is 250.0000 Hz, precision is 2**10

ntp uptime is 2500 (1/100 of seconds), resolution is 4000

reference time is E1D080F7.F6041B38 (14:41:43.961 EST Mon Jan 20 2020)

clock offset is 0.0000 msec, root delay is 0.00 msec

root dispersion is 3939.38 msec, peer dispersion is 3938.29 msec

loopfilter state is ‘CTRL’ (Normal Controlled Loop), drift is 0.000000000 s/s

system poll interval is 16, last update was 9 sec ago.

Because R3 is the NTP master, it is synchronized with itself (i.e., 127.127.1.1).

Note: It may take several minutes before the clock is synchronized with itself.

Close configuration window

Step 3:Configure R2 to be an NTP client.

In this step, R2 will acquire its time source from R3. Therefore, R2 is an NTP client and will identify the NTP server to associate with using the ntp server server-ip-address [prefer] [source interface-id] global configuration command.

  1. Verify that the system clock on R2.

Open configuration window

R2# show clock

*22:16:10.632 UTC Sun Jan 12 2020

The time is inaccurate.

  1. Configure R2 to synchronize to R3 using the ntp server server-ip-address command.

R2(config)# ntp server 172.16.1.2

R2(config)#

Jan 20 19:51:14.841: %PKI-6-AUTHORITATIVE_CLOCK: The system clock has been set.

  1. The local time zone must again be adjusted.

R2(config)# clock timezone EST -5

R2(config)#

Jan 20 19:51:31.908: %SYS-6-CLOCKUPDATE: System clock has been updated from 19:51:31 UTC Mon Jan 20 2020 to 14:51:31 EST Mon Jan 20 2020, configured from console by console.

R2(config)# exit

  1. Now verify the local time on R2.

R2# show clock detail

14:51:46.282 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is NTP

Notice that the time and time zone are accurate. The output also confirms that NTP was the time source.

* sys.peer, # selected, + candidate, – outlyer, x falseticker, ~ configured

The output confirms that R2 has associated with R3 (i.e., 172.16.1.2). Notice how it also identified the source of the R3 NTP information as 127.127.1.1 at stratum 10.

  1. Verify the status of NTP using the show ntp status command.

R2# show ntp status

Clock is synchronized, stratum 11, reference is 172.16.1.2

loopfilter state is ‘CTRL’ (Normal Controlled Loop), drift is -0.000000006 s/s

system poll interval is 128, last update was 114 sec ago.

The output confirms that R2 is synchronized with R3. When synchronized, R2 also becomes a stratum 11 NTP server.

Note: It may take a few minutes before the time is synchronized with the NTP server.

Close configuration window

Step 4:Configure R1 to be an NTP client.

In this step, R1 will become an NTP client of R2. No other configuration is required on R2 for it to advertise itself as an NTP server. However, R1 must identify R2 as its service using the ntp server command.

  1. Verify the system clock on R1.

Open configuration window

R1# show clock

*13:54:28.867 UTC Mon Jan 20 2020

The time is inaccurate.

  1. Configure R1 to synchronize with R2 using the ntp server command.

R1(config)# ntp server 172.16.0.1

R1(config)#

Jan 20 20:31:08.069: %PKI-6-AUTHORITATIVE_CLOCK: The system clock has been set.

  1. The local time zone must again be configured.

Note: It may take a few minutes before the time is synchronized with the NTP server.

Close configuration window

Part 3:Configure NTP in a Multiaccess Broadcast Network

In this part, NTP will be configured in a multiaccess broadcast network. Specifically, R1 will be the NTP server for the A1, D1, and D2 Ethernet clients.

In a multiaccess network, an NTP server can broadcast (i.e., multicast) NTP updates to listening NTP broadcast clients.

The NTP server Ethernet interface is configured using the ntp broadcast interface command.

NTP clients are configured using the ntp broadcast client interface command.

Step 1:Configure R1 to be an NTP broadcast server.

In this step, R1 will broadcast NTP advertisements to NTP clients using the ntp broadcast command on its GigabitEthernet 0/0/1 interface.

Enter the G0/0/1 interface and configure R1 to be an NTP broadcast server using the ntp broadcast command.

Notice that it has associated with R1 and recognizes it as the master.

  1. Verify the status of NTP using the show ntp status command.

D2# show ntp status

Clock is synchronized, stratum 13, reference is 10.10.0.1

nominal freq is 119.2092 Hz, actual freq is 119.2062 Hz, precision is 2**18

reference time is E1D0954A.0BF64157 (16:08:26.046 EST Mon Jan 20 2020)

clock offset is 19.2737 msec, root delay is 4.96 msec

root dispersion is 53.60 msec, peer dispersion is 3.52 msec

Note: It may take a few minutes before the time is synchronized with the NTP server.

Close configuration window

Step 4:Verify NTP on all devices.

Issue the show clock detail on all devices to validate that they are indeed synchronized.

Open configuration window

D2# show clock detail

16:18:00.306 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is NTP

D1# show clock detail

16:18:05.661 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is NTP

A1# show clock detail

16:18:10.556 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is NTP

R1# show clock detail

16:18:14.811 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is NTP

R2# show clock detail

16:18:18.854 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is NTP

R3# show clock detail

16:18:22.247 EST Mon Jan 20 2020

Time source is NTP

The show clock detail commands were entered sequentially in the devices which explains the few seconds in between each command output. The output reasonably confirms that the clocks on these devices are all synchronized.

Note: To find out how the router is configured, look at the interfaces to identify the type of router and how many interfaces the router has. There is no way to effectively list all the combinations of configurations for each router class. This table includes identifiers for the possible combinations of Ethernet and Serial interfaces in the device. The table does not include any other type of interface, even though a specific router may contain one. An example of this might be an ISDN BRI interface. The string in parenthesis is the legal abbreviation that can be used in Cisco IOS commands to represent the interface.
