/system ntp client get status returns no state

I'm trying to set up the script from

However, it hangs, trying to get the NTP status:

It seems that 'get status' doesn't return anything, even though a print shows the status as synchronized?

[admin@koerberGW] /system ntp client> print
enabled: yes
mode: unicast
status: synchronized
[admin@koerberGW] /system ntp client> get status
[admin@koerberGW] /system ntp client>
This is on
Model 2011iL
Serial Number 55660414D4C9
Current Firmware 3.19
Upgrade Firmware 3.19

Oh, all packages have been updated to 6.23

Any idea what could cause this?

Using get doesn't return anything on it's own... you'll have to set it to a variable, or use :put, something like this:
:put [/system ntp client get status]
What I would do is enclose the whole script in curly braces { } (because you're using local variables) and paste into the terminal. See if there are any errors, and proceed from there.
