By default, the Ivanti CSA Operation system works without time synchronization to specific NTP network server. There is a possibility to set up local time through the management gateway page (GSB ). but the time is not synchronized automatically.
To have synchronized CSA server with the global or local NTP server time, the additional customization is required. Data time information is mostly inherited from the host resources, where the OS is working.
NTP update time procedure
To have customized NTP settings, the access to the direct console is needed. It is recommended to use SSH client connectivity like Putty to establish a required connection.
Please make sure the external router is allowing to establish SSH connection. The local firewall CSA settings should allow for that connectivity for particular NIC or the firewall status should be disabled.
Once the SSH connection is established, the ntpdate command will be used.
The time, set on the CSA server can be quickly checked by running the command:
Using the admin privileges the new time will be set up, based on the return message from the specified NTP server.
The update procedure should be performed by running the below command
sudo ntpdate 0.pl.pool.ntp.org
where the 0.pl.pool.ntp.org is the address of the NTP server to be used for synchronization
NTP automatic time update procedure
To have updated server time as an automatic service, the NTPD service should be configured as well.
The below procedures should be run
chkconfig ntpdate on nano /etc/ntp.conf
NTP.conf file should have an updated server address with the iburst switch
After that, the next command should be performed
service ntpd restart chkconfig ntpd on
As the alternative way, the ntpupdate procedure can be put as a scheduled local Linux task, executed in specified in cron time recurrence
