Time difference between hpux server rp7420 and atomic clock

Hi All,

I am facing a problem with the system clock timing when compare with the atomic clock.I have to set the time daily morning with atomic clock.
We can't accept time difference more than 4 second .

Can any body help me out for doing this time setting automated with atomic clock using NTP
server? or else is there any other way?

Thanks in advance

Re: Time difference between hpux server rp7420 and atomic clock

Hi,
Here is the stpe to configure NTP server and client

At server: only need to set: the XNTPD variable to equal 1 (/etc/rc.config.d/netdaemon)
Others parameter should keep it be blank.

At client: must set all below parameter:
export NTPDATE_SERVER='NTP server1 NTP server2'
export XNTPD=1
export XNTPD_ARGS=

and /etc/ntp.conf:
broadcastclient yes
server NTP server
driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
save the file

touch /etc/ntp.drift

The drift file is used to track the accuracy of the local clock over time. It is maintained
by xntpd and used later to send fewer time synchronization requests to the server.


ntpq -p
