Hello @shaukat


Please see the attached ADX Admin Guide. The following excerpt from the Guide should help you:


Configuring SNTP
Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) ensures all devices have a synchronized time and date. If the ServerIronADX is configured to reference an authoritative SNTP server, the ServerIronADX automatically sets its system time counter according to the server (even after a system reset). Refer to RFC 1769 for more information. Refer to the show clock command to display the current

Configuring an SNTP server location
You can define the SNTP server’s location and specify an IP address or hostname. You can configure up to three SNTP servers by entering three separate sntp server commands. To configure an SNTP server location, enter a command such as the following:

ServerIronADX(config)#sntp server
Syntax: [no] sntp server ip-addr | hostname [version]

The version variable specifies the SNTP version the server is running and can be from 1 – 4. The default is 1.


Hopefully this helps; if we may further assist via the Community, please let us know.
