Hi:

COnfiguring and using NTP is simple. See here for instructions:

http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90774/ch04.html

I suggest using three external time sources. Excellent ones can be found in the pool:

http://www.ntppool.org/

Once you establish NTP, use 'ntpq' to confirm its functionality.

There are a number of formum posts on this subject.

Hi,

To verify the ntp server configuration (and its association with peer NTP servers) by executing the following command:

ntpq -p

Shalom,

Note on NTP, NTP will not large time differences between NTP server and HP-UX server. If the difference is more than an hour or so, you may need to make a manual adjustment to the time.

Try to avoid a backward time adjustment to a working system. That is a 100% sure way to crash many applications, for example an Oracle database.
