New to Fortinet devices. I' m a Cisco network engineer that has transitioned to a firewall team.
I have questions on using NTP with these Fortinet devices.
1. Can you use multiple sources for NTP? For example, I want my device to point to an internal GPS timeserver, with a back-up to an external known server.
2. Can you only set 1 source ip for both? Does it matter?
I have an internal GPS unit that is on my internal network. I' m using ntpv3 and authentication to the internal device. However, it' s not synching. BUT, the external time server IS synching, and not using authentication. However, if I do a debug on the internal, I can see that it is authenticating correctly. I know on Cisco devices, you can use the " prefer" command to force it to use one NTP server..and only if it cannot connect will it try the others you specified.
Thanks in advance!
