Re: NTP (not SNTP) on the System i ?



fixed

Raul,

The i doesn't have an NTP client...only SNTP...which the OP was told was
not good enough.

Set up NTP. It works great, and it is not hard to do.

is not sufficient. One of the reasons given is that SNTP allows you to
define multiple time servers on the Internet but it uses a round robin
approach such that if one server is down it goes to the next. With NTP,
apparently multiple servers are considered by the protocol and it
determines
which is the most accurate.



We've tried to demonstrate to the governing body the SNTP support along
with
the log files it creates as it adjusts the time but they've justsaid no
so
we're looking for other ways to implement NTP on the System i.



Any suggestions anyone?
