sntp on hp switch

I have configured the sntp server setting on an HP switch when it didn't have any internet connection.
Now its on the network and has internet, im confused why its not syncing the time.

Ideas?

Can i force?

Thanks

It would help to see the config.

I sometimes takes a few minutes to pull the time.  IIRC, the default is 12 minutes.

Looks okay to me.

Please post the output of a "show sntp".

Have you tried a different NTP server?

So here's what we know:

NTP appears to be properly configured.
The NTP server is valid since it's used on other devices.
You have a 12 minute interval on the updates.
You've sent out 4,980 requests but you haven't received any replies.

The only thing that I can think of is that the ASA is blocking the returning messages.

Just as a test, I would also try a different server.  I have run into situations where some servers limit the number of clients from a single IP address.

changed ips, we shall see what happens...
although sent packets increased and no received.
i reckon firewall blocking..
