I have a ICX7450 that will not add my ntp server, All our other ICX switches work just fine, ntp debug comes up with this:

Debug: Aug 11 23:09:16 NTP: UDP ports are opened
Debug: Aug 11 23:09:21 NTP: ntp_peer_unfit: dist exceeded - root dist 1620.84877000 of peer x.x.x.6 has exceeded max dist 1.50096000
Debug: Aug 11 23:09:21 NTP: ntp_peer_unfit: unreachable - peer x.x.x.6 is not reachable [peer->reach 0]
Debug: Aug 11 23:09:21 NTP: peer_clear: peer x.x.x.6 next 106989918 refid INIT
Debug: Aug 11 23:09:21 NTP: newpeer: x.x.x.6  mode client vers 4 poll 6 10 key 00000000
 Flags  Flags -> iBURST

Anyone have any suggestions/ideas as to why this is happening?  Rebooting the switch is last resort as its at a remote site.

Thanks

Try setting the time manually then try NTP again.  It looks like the time difference between switch and ntp server has exceeded that max difference allowed.

Hello,

The time source seems behind several routers causing delay in synchronization or not reliable, Pls try with another ntp server closest to your location.

whats interesting is all the other ruckus switches at this site are happy with the ntp server.
