ntp advice plzzzz


Hello,

I have 3 redhat 8.0 and one solaris 8.0 in my LAN. i want all my 3 redhat machines to synchrinize time with solaris 8.0 using NTP. Now what i have done is in the ntp.conf of all the 4 machines entered the ip address of solaris machine and started ntp service. when i give ntpdate -q solaris_ip it returns the o/p with 0.0245 delay. Is this right what i have done or do i need to follow something else to synchronize redhat machines with solaris machine using ntp. kindly advice . I am new to NTP concept. Thanks in advance.

ntpdate is fine, but if you have the demons
running you shouldn't be able to run it in
the first place...

Cheers,

The demon is fine, just if it's running
ntpdate should give you an error.

Cheers,

depends how you want to do it really, personally i do run ntpd on the client machines, as this keeps track of any drifts constantly rather than every time ntptimeset or whatever is actually run, manually or via a cron job etc...
