NTP Servers

Ensure that external NTP server is stratum 9 or higher (1-9). To add, delete, or modify an external NTP server, follow this procedure:


Note You can only configure the NTP server settings on the first node or publisher.


Procedure


Step 1 From the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, navigate to Settings>NTP Servers.

The NTP Server Settings window displays.

Step 2 You can add, delete, or modify an NTP server:

To delete an NTP server, check the check box in front of the appropriate server and click Delete.

To add an NTP server, click Add, enter the hostname or IP address, and then click Save.

To modify an NTP server, click the IP address, modify the hostname or IP address, and then click Save.


Note Any change that you make to the NTP servers can take up to 5 minutes to complete. Whenever you make any change to the NTP servers, you must refresh the window to display the correct status.


Step 3 To refresh the NTP Server Settings window and display the correct status, choose Settings>NTP.


Note After deleting, modifying, or adding the NTP server, you must restart all other nodes in the cluster for the changes to take affect.



SMTP Settings

The SMTP Settings window allows you to view or set the SMTP hostname and indicates whether the SMTP host is active.


Tip If you want the system to send you e-mail, you must configure an SMTP host.


To access the SMTP settings, follow this procedure:

Step 1 From the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, navigate to Settings>SMTP.

The SMTP Settings window displays.

Step 2 Enter or modify the SMTP hostname or IP address.

Step 3 Click Save.


Time Settings

Note Before you can manually configure the server time, you must delete any NTP servers that you have configured. See NTP Servers for more information.


Procedure


Step 1 From the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, navigate to Settings > Time.

Step 2 Enter the date and time for the system.

Step 3 Click Save.

Step 4 On a Cisco Unity Connection server, if you changed the date or if you changed the time by more than two minutes, use the CLI command utils system restart to restart the server.
