You can use sysman to configure NTP client.

Edit /etc/ntp.conf and add:


server version 3
server version 3
server version 3

In /etc/rc.config set:

XNTPD_CONF="YES"
XNTP_SERV1="ntp_server1"
export XNTP_SERV1
XNTP_SERV2="ntp_server2"
export XNTP_SERV2
XNTP_SERV3="ntp_server3"
export XNTP_SERV3
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Remark.
My experince : synchronisation is not performed when the specified ntp-server itself is NOT synchronized to an external timeserver (stratum 0).
So you cannot use a local ntp server where the time is set manually as master.

Pieter -

You can make the "specified server" sync to its own internal clock by including the line

server 127.127.1.0

in its ntp.conf file. Once it has acquired sync (takes about 8 minutes) other systems can sync with it as their NTP server. The NTP server in this case defaults to stratum 5, but if you don't like that you can change it with the 'fudge' command in ntp.conf:

fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum

Mark thanks for the tip.
I'll keep it in mind for the future.
But at present the w2k3 domain controlers are chosen to function as master.
