Configuring SNTP on ProCurve Switches

This is probably the shortest video I’ve ever made, but the task is really simple — configuring the Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) on an HP ProCurve switch.

For reference, here’s the “sntp” commands available in the software:

ProCurve Switch 2610-48(config)# sntp ?
 broadcast             Operate in broadcast mode
               The amount of time between updates of the system clock
                       via SNTP
 server                Configure SNTP servers to poll time from.
 unicast               Operate in unicast mode

…and, of course, “timesync” takes an argument too…

ProCurve Switch 2610-48(config)# timesync ?
 sntp                  Set the time protocol to SNTP
 timep                 Set the time protocol to the TIME protocol

Pretty simple, huh? Here’s the video:
