When setting the clock source for a host, set the hostname or address of an NTP server to be the network clock source for the host. If the host is using a local clock source, you must specify local here to allow Set the Local Clock Source to be effective.

Specify the Network Clock Source

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration >Services.
  2. In the Services grid, select a service and Actns.png View> System
    The System view for the service is displayed.
  3. In the Services System view toolbar, click Host Tasks.
  4. In the Host Task List, select Set Network Time Source.

  5. Do one of the following:
  • Type the hostname or address of the NTP server to serve as the clock source for this host; for example: source=tictoc.localdomain
  • If you want to use the host clock as a clock source, type:
  1. Click Run.
    The clock source is set and a message is displayed in the Output area.

Note: If you specified a NTP clock source of local, the host clock serves as the clock source and the time is configured using Set Host Built-In Clock.
