  • 1.  NTP boot server on MX

    Posted 11-24-2021 14:20
    I have noticed that there no longer appears to be an option for an NTP boot server to be configured on Junos 20.4:

    root@lab# set system ntp ?
    Possible completions:
    <[Enter]> Execute this command
    + apply-groups Groups from which to inherit configuration data
    + apply-groups-except Don't inherit configuration data from these groups
    > authentication-key Authentication key information
    > broadcast Broadcast parameters
    broadcast-client Listen to broadcast NTP
    > interval-range Set the minpoll and maxpoll interval range
    > multicast-client Listen to multicast NTP
    > peer Peer parameters
    > restrict Restrict options
    > server Server parameters
    > source-address Source-Address parameters
    > threshold Set the maximum threshold(sec) allowed for NTP adjustment
    + trusted-key List of trusted authentication keys (1..65534)
    | Pipe through a command

    Does anyone know why this is and if an alternate configuration is available?

    The "system ntp boot server" command has been deprecated. Today, you only need to configure "system ntp server". As far as I understood, it is because ntpdate is not used anymore at the OS level.
