NTP Server 5 seconds error

tombhandari1

When I run

cluster time-service ntp server create -server X.X.X.X.-version auto,

 

I get this error:

Error: command failed: Unable to successfully query NTP server X.X.X.X with address  X.X.X.X. within 5 seconds.

Can anyone help please?

Which version of ONTAP? Can you successfully ping NTP server via the node management LIF?

I am having the same error running on Ontap 9.1.  And I can ping the NTP servers from the node mgmt LIF.

 

Any suggestions

Hi thank you for your quick reply, but on Cluster is already one Time Server configured. I need to add 2 more time servers because of the redundancy. 

As you can see below, I can ping the time servers, they are available. But unfortunately I get the following errors when I enter the command to add additional timer servers.
