Question Server Time Synchronisation


Hi, can anyone help...

At the moment, have a few RS/6000 and NUMA-Q servers running "timed" to synchronise their server times. Would like to include our first Linux server in the loop, so was looking for an implementation for linux. Thought that this was a pretty standard implimentation and there'd be no trouble with this, although can't find the relevant package anywhere, could you tell me where abouts to get it, if it exists, and/or what you guys are using in your networks?

Cheers

An ntp client for linux is what you want?

Check this site:

http://www.ntp.org/

Should be present on one of the redhat cd's as well.

Thats fair enough, although its a totally different protocol, I'd have to reconfigure all my servers to use with , Has nobody any idea if a "timed" protocol exists?

I think nearly every other OS uses on NTP for time synchronization. It's been around for quite a while.

Yes it does exist.. I think it can be installed on redhat, and it usually runs via xinetd. I'm not sure, though...
