Time Sync on Surface Hub 2s

New Contributor

Hello,

 

following issue: Surface Hub 2s (enrolled in Intune) connects to the internet via proxy and the proxy blocks the NTP access to time.microsoft.com. How can I set up the local NTP server? Any ideas?

Hello @Diomann,

 

The NTP server is set when the device is joined to a local AD. Otherwise, you can whitelist time.windows.com on the proxy/firewall

 

Thank you,

It only joined to a Azure AD. Any other solutions?
These are the only options. If the device is AAD joined, you should allow time.windows.com to be used for time synchronization. Maybe a separate VLAN for Surface Hubs would be a possible solution
We just created an A-Record in our DNS and linked the time.windows.com to our internal NTP server. This works
Happy to hear that!
