Problem

How to I load XNTPD instead of timesync during server startup?

XNTPD is the implementation of Network Time Protocol Version 3 (NTPv3) on NetWare 6.5 based on RFC 1305. It is the new time synchronization service that is used to synchronize time with servers that are NTPv3 compliant.

Solution

The load sequence at stage 3 calls sys:\system\timeserv.ncf which decides between timesync and xntpd. Simply comment out the timesync line and uncomment the xntpd.

#Load Timesync
Load XNTPD

To read more about XNTPD, check out this section of the NetWare 6.5 documentation: http://www.novell.com/documentation/lg/nw65/utlrfenu/data/akwtbq0.html
