Synchronising time for your Openfiler SAN

openFilerFor authentication purposes your SAN needs to be synchronised within 5 minutes of your ESXi and Windows servers.  It is a good practice, if not an essential part of configuring your Openfiler SAN, to synchronise time with a time server.  This article uses an internet time server, but you could use your own internal ntp server.  Log on to your Openfiler SAN Management console to get started.


Synchronise Time

  1. Go to System tab.
  2. Click Clock Setup.
  3. Enter 1.pool.ntp.org in the Server: field
  4. Click Setup synchronization.

 

Note that if the time is initially more than 5 minutes out you may have to set the time manually before it will pick up time from the internet.
