How ONTAP is managing Leap Second 2015

Hey

 

I can not find any information on Leap second addition in support. Can someone please help me to understand how ONTAP is going to manage this?

Hi,

 

Assuming you have configured ONTAP to sync with an NTP time source and issues such as kerberos clock skew only occur if the time between the storage controller and domain controller is greater than 300 seconds (5 minutes) different then I don't think this will present risk. If the time is correct on the NTP source then Data ONTAP will transition through the leap second event.

Hope that helps
