System Time Synchronization?

» close window

The Question is:

I have several vaxes that are not running TCP/IP software.  How can I
 sychronize their time?  These vaxes are running DECnet.

The Answer is :

  Most commonly, using IP NTP or using DECnet-Plus DTSS.  Most OpenVMS
  systems have a NET-APP-SUP* or UCX license, thus permitting TCP/IP
  Services to be installed and configured.
  But at its simplest, DCL task-to-task can be used.  See topic (159)
  for an example.
  Please also see the OpenVMS FAQ section on keeping the OpenVMS system
  time synchronized for suggestions, alternatives, and pointers.
