Synchronizing NetVault Time

About NetVault Time

NetVault Backup designates a Time Server, called NetVault Time Server, to synchronize time on the server and all client machines in the NetVault Backup Domain. Typically, the NetVault Backup Server acts as the NetVault Time Server, and the system time on this machine is the NetVault Time. However, you can designate any other NetVault Backup machine as the NetVault Time Server. NetVault Backup ignores the local time on the clients and uses NetVault Time for all time-specific operations, such as job scheduling, reporting, and tracing.

Configuring an alternate NetVault Time Server

To configure default settings for a NetVault Backup Client, click Client Settings. In the NetVault Backup Clients table, select the client, and click Next.
Under System and Security, click Time Sync. In the Time Sync dialog box, configure the following settings.

This machine is the NetVault time server

This check box is selected by default on the NetVault Backup Server.

To configure an alternate time server, clear this check box on the NetVault Backup Server.

Synchronize NetVault time with system

Type the NetVault Backup name of the alternate time server.

Number of ping-pongs to determine time difference

Type or select the number of time packets to be exchanged while polling. The default value is 5.

Number of hours between time sync updates

Specify how often the NetVault Backup Server checks to see if it is still synchronized with the time server.

The default polling interval is 24 hours.

Number of milliseconds of time difference allowed between 2 servers

Type or select the allowed time variance.

By default, NetVault Backup allows 1000-millisecond variance between the NetVault Backup Server and the NetVault Time Server.

Click Apply to apply the new settings and close the dialog box.
