How to configure NTP on SUN Solaris 10

cp /etc/inet/ntp.server /etc/inet/ntp.conf

edit the ntp.conf file.

Syncing to an external NTP server:

(see http://www.pool.ntp.org/ for a list of public time servers)

change `server 127.127.XType.0`
to `server time_server`

you can add multiple servers also, for example:

server 0.be.pool.ntp.org
server 1.be.pool.ntp.org
server 2.be.pool.ntp.org
server 3.be.pool.ntp.org

comment out `fudge 127.127.XType.0 stratum 0`

touch /var/ntp/ntp.drift
svcadm enable svc:/network/ntp
