No, you need to set it up.

If you want to setup the Solaris box as the NTP client, have a look at this example:

For more details about Solaris 10 NTP server and client setup, please read:

Thanks yuzh.

We have a piece of hardware connected to our solaris 10 box. This piece of hardware runs embedded linux. It synchs to the Solaris 10 box (via NTP) so both logs are lined up.  Does Solaris 10 come with an NTP server?  If so, is it enabled?

I did , I couldn't deduce from the links if NTP server is on by default. According to docs.sun.com, I have to use the svc command to enable

yuzh's first sentence is:

"No, you need to set it up."

Meaning, no, NTP is not on by default, you need to set it up first.

For a very basic setup, this means doing

echo "server <ntp server>" >/etc/inet/ntp.conf
