Hi,

AIX: /etc/ntp.conf

AIX uses xntpd. It's started via SRC in /etc/rc.tcpip so you can use "startsrc -s xntpd", "stopsrc -s xntpd", "refresh -s xntpd" and "lssrc -ls xntpd".
ntpq, ntpdate etc. and xntpdc are available.

Solaris: /etc/inet/ntp.conf
Solaris uses xntpd as well. The service is controlled by svcadm. "svcs" and "svcadm" can be used.
ntpq, ntpdate etc. are available.

Ok it is my job to "prove" ntp is running on these boxes.  I can not find a ntp.conf xnpt.conf  on the box.  

I tried for the long shot  svcs | grep ntp
one box came up with svc:/network/ntp:default

How can I find the file that tells me what ntp servers it uses to keep it's time correct. ?

Which OS does the "box" run?

In AIX it's definitely /etc/ntp.conf, the process is xntpd.
You can check with "lssrc -ls xntpd". It will show you status and configuration.
"ps -ef |grep ntp" will show you the running process, if any.
/etc/ntp.conf is always present, because xntpd comes with "bos.net.tcp.client", a fileset which is installed by default, regardless of whether you plan to use xntpd or not.

In Solaris it's /etc/inet/ntp.conf, the process is also xntpd and you can check with
"svcs |grep ntp", just as you wrote, and additionally of course with "ps -ef | grep ntp", just as above under AIX.
Initially there are /etc/inet/ntp.server and /etc/inet/ntp.client. The appropriate file must be renamed/copied to /etc/inet/ntp.conf, depending on whether you're going to configure the machine as a server or a client.

If there is no ntp.conf the box is maybe running openntpd, whose configuration file is /etc/ntpd.conf!
openntpd exists in portable versions for Solaris and even for AIX.

that is why the file was not there.
