Configure DNS Servers:

[email protected]# set service dns forwarding name-server 8.8.8.8
[email protected]# set service dns forwarding name-server 8.8.4.4
[email protected]# commit ; save

Configure Time Servers:

[email protected]# set system ntp server pool.ntp.org
[email protected]# commit
[email protected]# delete system ntp server pool.ntp.org
[email protected]# commit ; save

[email protected]~$ show date
