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



fixed

Good luck on that, man - I'm sure many here are interested in your results. Hope that "more or less" doesn't hurt you!!

Thanks, we saw the same thing. Since we're using an HMC and the System i
connects to it more or less we are going to show the HMC console/NTP setup
and the System i log files showing how the time is adjusted automatically
which should be acceptable.

Hi Mike

There is no NTP on IBM i - Raul got it a little off - as his later post
showed.

Even the AIX one - which isn't in PASE, so far as I can tell - even that is
really SNTP, I think.

HMC seems to have a true NTP setup - could be a server, hence, someone
suggested this could work, to have HMC get the clock and set it on i.

I've a feeling that would not fly either with the government

How do I setup NTP? I only see SNTP support in Navigator?

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

I need to meet a government requirement that says my System i must
use the NTP protocol and set its time. I'm well aware of IBM's built
in support for SNTP but the requirements state that SNTP ("simple"
network time protocol) 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?
