EF & E-Series, SANtricity, and Related Plug-ins
I'm trying to figure out how to change the NTP servers on my E2760. The procedure doesn't seem to be the same as my other SANS (5560, 5660). I found documentation (https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/public/eseries/cli/index.html#page/GUID-C39AE1DE-C63B-4B37-9DCA-C0183EB68F36/GUID-36B1991E-CD9C-48F6-85E5-5BD9676414E...) stating to use SMLi or Script Editor, but when I use the example script in the doc, I get a syntax error. For example:
When I enter this
set controller[a] NTPServers=("0.pool.ntp.org" "1.us.pool.ntp.org");
The results box in Script Editor gives me this after selecting Verify and Execute
Performing syntax check...Encountered "NTPServers" at line 1, column 19.Was expecting one of:"availability" ..."NVSRAMByte" ..."batteryInstallDate" ..."globalNVSRAMByte" ..."hostNVSRAMByte" ..."rloginEnabled" ..."ethernetPort" ..."serviceMode" ..."serviceAllowedIndicator" ..."gatewayIp" ..."IPV4GatewayIP" ..."IPV6RouterAddress" ..."iscsiHostPort" ...
I don't understand why the example provided in the doc doesn't work. If there's a way to do it in the GUI, I'd be fine with that.
See The Solution
Based on the picture you shared, I believe this is a E5460 instead of E2760. E54xx doesn't have the capability of configuring NTP servers.

I don't have access to an eSeries to try this on at the moment, but I did find the documentation for doing this in the System Manager GUI here.
Thanks for the reply, but this appears to be for a more modern E-series. The steps you provided work on my E5760 but don't apply to the E2760--it's a much older SAN.
The command CLI syntax is correct. I tested it in our lab on an E2760 and it worked successfully.
With regard to the GUI (Array Management Window), you can find the steps to configure NTP servers in this document (pages 181-182): https://mysupport.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_get_file/ECMLP2862590
Thanks for the help, but this doesn't work either. I only have Management Ports and iSCSI Ports under Configure.
I think you're right. We must have this one mislabeled. Thanks!
