Synchronising time for your Openfiler SAN
For 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.
- Go to System tab.
- Click Clock Setup.
- Enter 1.pool.ntp.org in the Server: field
- 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.
