No version of Solaris has NTP started by default.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
copy /etc/inet/ntp.client  to /etc/inet/ntp.conf for your server to be an ntp client

Then issue /etc/init.d/xntpd start to start ntp service

If you want your computer to be an ntp server then copy /etc/inet/ntp.server to /etc/inet/ntp.conf (and edit that file appropriately)

Then issue /etc/init.d/xntpd start to start ntp service
