Timestamp logs on Force10 FTOS

When you enabled logging on FTOS by default it doesn’t timestamp the log entries. Instead it shows that an event occurred this many minutes/hours/days/weeks ago from the time you issued the show logging command.


Basic NTP configuration on Force10 FTOS

Information below outlines how to configure a Force10 switch running FTOS to obtain it’s time from a the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server.

show ntp status will display the current NTP status. You can see that the clock is not synchronized, nor is a reference clock specified. As you’ll see later on, once you complete the NTP configuration, the IP address of the NTP server will be displayed here.
