Rotate NTP servers

◀ Go back to main README

🛈 This script can not be used on its own but requires the base installation. See main README for details.


RouterOS requires NTP servers to be configured by IP address. Servers from a pool may appear and disappear, leaving broken NTP configuration.

This script allows to rotate IP addresses from a given pool.

Requirements and installation

Just install the script:

$ScriptInstallUpdate rotate-ntp;


The configuration goes to global-config-overlay, this is the parameter:

  • NtpPool: dns name of ntp server pool

Usage and invocation

Just run the script to update the NTP configuration with actual IP addresses from pool if required.

Alternatively a scheduler can be created:

/ system scheduler add interval=5d name=rotate-ntp on-event="/ system script run rotate-ntp;" start-time=startup;
