NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       timedsetup  -  Performs  initial  setup of the time server
       daemon (timed).

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The timedsetup command is an interactive script  that  can
       be  used to perform initial time service configuration for
       your system.

       By default, timed does not start at boot time.  The timedsetup
  script  asks  if  you  want  the timed daemon to be
       started at boot time, and prompts you for any  options  to
       pass  to  the  timed  daemon  whenever it is invoked.  The
       script then starts the timed daemon.

       For  more  information  on  the  timed  options,  see  the
       timed(8) reference page.


       The  timed  daemon  is  provided for compatibility.  Tru64
       UNIX also provides support for the Network  Time  Protocol
       (NTP)  through  the xntpd daemon, which is the recommended
       method of time synchronization. If your system is  configured
  to run NTP, the timedsetup command passes the -E and
       -M options to the timed daemon by default.

       If you plan to run both the  timed  daemon  and  NTP,  you
       should configure NTP first.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       In configurations with two or more hosts each connected to
       the same two or more subnetworks, only one of the host can
       run the timed with the -M option.
