# Configure Switch A to operate in IPv6 multicast client mode and receive IPv6 multicast messages
on VLAN-interface 3.
[SwitchA] interface vlan-interface 3
[SwitchA-Vlan-interface3] ntp-service ipv6 multicast-client ff24::1
Verify the configuration:
# Display the NTP status of Switch A after clock synchronization.
[SwitchA-Vlan-interface3] display ntp-service status
Clock status: synchronized
Clock stratum: 3

Configuration example for NTP client/server mode
As shown in
Configure the local clock of Device A as a reference source, with the stratum level 2.
Configure Device B to operate in client mode and specify Device A as the NTP server of Device B,
with Device B as the client.
Configure NTP authentication on both Device A and Device B.
