  • SSH to the Group Interface IP (10.100 in our case)
  • Login as “fse”
  • Password “”
  • At the CLI prompt check the current cluster time using
    system time-configuration view
  • If the time is wrong reset it (This will turn off NTP sync) using
    system time-configuration -updatetime "DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM:SS"
  • Use the view command to check it again.
  • If you need to set the NTP time use your DC’s NTP functionality on the client network and set it using
    system time-configuration set-ntpserver

That’s it for now…….
