timedsetup(8)							timedsetup(8)



NAME

  timedsetup - Performs	initial	setup of the time server daemon	(timed).

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/timedsetup

DESCRIPTION

  The timedsetup command is an interactive script that can be used to perform
  initial time service configuration for your system.

  By default, timed does not start at boot time.  The timedsetup script	asks
  if you want the timed	daemon to be started at	boot time, and prompts you
  for any options to pass to the timed daemon whenever it is invoked.  The
  script then starts the timed daemon.

  For more information on the timed options, see the timed(8) reference	page.

				     Note

       The timed daemon	is provided for	compatibility.	Tru64 UNIX also	pro-
       vides support for the Network Time Protocol (NTP) through the xntpd
       daemon.	Compaq recommends you use NTP for time synchronization.	 If
       your system is configured to run	NTP, the timedsetup command passes
       the -E and -M options to	the timed daemon by default.

       If you plan to run both the timed daemon	and NTP, you should configure
       NTP first.

RESTRICTIONS

  In configurations with two or	more hosts each	connected to the same two or
  more subnetworks, only one of	the host can run the timed with	the -M
  option.
