Hi

I'm an admin for a company with a windows environment. We have one Sun box w/ solaris.
Can someone help me with a script to sync the time with an NT server?
Thanks!

Technically, you should not be trying to sync two machines locally together; you should install ntpd and sync both machines off ntpd (Network Time Protocol Daemon) servers on the internet which derive their time frmo the atomic clock.
In small to large scale production, this is how time sync is accomplished. Also, if you worl globally, I suggest resetting the time to UTC as a baseline. This way, you have multiple servers in multiple time zones, you are working off the same UTC time.
