Switch NTP Configuration

Since the API lacked NTP configuration commands, I created this script using React perl module. It is designed to configure the NTP client on your primary switch. Once configured, the primary switch will keep it's time synchronized with your NTP server. The subsequent switches in the fabric can then look to it for the correct time as normal.


Operating System UNIX (written on Solaris 8 with Active Perl 5.8.3 and the IO::React and Proc::Spawn modules installed, but will work with any system running perl)

Interface React Interactive.

Fabric Operating System v3.1.1

Other Tailored for the prompting sequence of a SilkWorm 3800.



Can be tweaked easily to run on any other Brocade switch available.
