Time synchronization with no access to a NTP server

Hi,

I have 2 rx2660 servers runnning HP-UX 11.23. They are on a network that has no access to a NTP server. I need the 2 servers to be synchronize. Is there a way to configure NTP so one server will feed itself from the other. It's not really important that master server as the proper time, just that the 2 servers have the same time.

Thanks,

You can still run the setup NTP service. Make one of the servers the NTP server and use its own clock as the time source. Look in /etc/ntp.conf for examples, directions. Make the other server a client to the first server.

FYI: what you described is called 'local clock impersonator'
