While it is possible to configure the system time on your appliance manually, we recommend that you synchronize your appliance clocks with Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers, which are an external and accurate time source.
By default, all ExtraHop appliances are synchronized to the pool.ntp.org time servers. Follow the steps below to synchronize time to your preferred time servers.
- Log into the Admin UI on the ExtraHop appliance.
- In the Appliance Settings section, click System Time.
- Click Configure Time.
- Click the Time Zone drop-down list and select a time zone.
- Click Save and Continue.
On the Time Setup page, select Set time with
NTP server and then click Select.
The pool.ntp.org public time server appears in the Time Server #1 field by default.
Type the IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the time servers
in the Time Server fields. You can add a maximum of nine
Tip: After adding the fifth time server, click Add Server to display up to four additional time server fields.
- Click Save, and then click Done.
