I'be been given an AIX system to manage and I have no documentation. I just need to find out whether NTP is a standard feauture of the Operating System. Can someone tell me? I have no AIX training and don't know much about the system yet. I believe it's AIX version 4.2.1 (not positive). Thanks!

News Transport Protocol (nntp) or  Network Time Protocol (xntp)? xntp is included in AIX 4.2 onwards - Try "ls /usr/sbin/xntpd" or "man xntpd" to see if it is installed.

"oslevel" should tell you the full version number, e.g. 4.3.2.0 - You'll need to know at some stage!

http://www.rs6000.ibm.com/support/ has the 4.3 documentation online; Take a look at www.ugu.com too - There's some good AIX links from there.

Thanks tfewster! That's exactly what I needed to know. This aix system doesn't appear to have any man pages installed. By the way, it was Network Time Protocol I was interested in. Thanks again!
