Known Affected Releases

17.1.1 17.4.1

Description (partial)

The router will fail to sync and take time from an NTP server (any linux box).

The available cmac-aes-128 option in IOS-NTP is not working if peer is using open source NTP.

Specifically we are using this version of ntpd on the linux box;
root@ntp:/# ntpd --version
ntpd 4.2.8p12@1.3728-o (1)

The router is configured to authenticate to the server via symmetric key using an algorithm of cmac-aes-128
