EMC Unisphere – Basics – Part 1 – Setup Domain NTP

This is the first in a series of “death by screenshot” posts that demonstrate activities in Unisphere that I’ve found myself having to do, and thought that someone else may find useful as well. Today’s lesson is on setting NTP servers for the local domain.

From the dashboard, click on Domains.

Under the Local Domain menu on the left-hand side of the window, click on Configure NTP to, er, configure NTP.

A friendly message pops up regarding NTP.

You then have to actually do something. The first thing to do is tick the radio button to enable NTP, and decide on a synchronisation interval.

This is what a ticked radio button looks like:

You then need to add some IP addresses. In the following illustration, I’ve added 2 servers.

Click on OK and you’ll have the opportunity to confirm the configuration changes.

And I couldn’t finish without including my favourite message …

Seems like a trivial thing to post on, but I was scratching my head for a few minutes trying to work out where to configure NTP in Unisphere, and I thought you might too.
