Re: NTP in hp-ux

The purpose is to keep time synchronized to an acknowledged, respected source.

The easiest way to configure it is to use SAM or search in the forums for NTP related threads.

Re: NTP in hp-ux

Here is also a nice explanation which points out the importance of being on time on every node in the network.

Time advances. When nodes on a network are at different times, then you'll jump backwards and cause something undesireable.

For example, transactions between boxes are continuous in many applications like SAP.

Re: NTP in hp-ux

Hi Ajin,

An NTP synchronization subnet is a network of time-keeping systems, called time servers. These time servers are a subset of the systems on a network or an internetwork. Each time server synchronizes its time with the the Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), and measures the time difference between its local system clock and the neighboring system clocks. These servers are automatically assigned stratum values, which indicate how close the time server is to the time source.

Check below link,

Hope, it will resolve ur problem.

Hi,

NTP used especially to synchronize your server to well known NTP server , that connected to precision atomic clock server. Config files under :

/etc/ntp.conf - Determines the synchronization sources & operation modes NTP.

To see if ntp deamon is running :
# ps -ef |grep xntpd
root 1068 1 0 Oct 20 ? 19:07 /usr/sbin/xntpd

to start ntp:
# /etc/init.d/xntpd start

Re: NTP in hp-ux

/etc/ntp.conf is the file where you will assign your ntp server

than

/etc/rc.config.d/netdaemons do the following entry

export NTPDATE_SERVER=server_name
export XNTPD=1


cd /sbin/init.d

./xntpd start

if you want to check the status

you can give following command

ntpq -p

or ntpq
ntpq> peers

Good Luck
