       dts_intro - Introduction to the DCE DTS commands

       The  DCE	 Distributed Time Service (DTS) provides the following facili‐
       ties: The dtsd daemon The DTS control program  (dtscp)  The  DTS	 local
       clock setting program (dtsdate)

       The DTS is implemented in the dtsd process. Both clerks and servers use
       the same daemon. The behavior of the dtsd daemon is determined  by  the
       dtscp command.

       The  dtscp control program allows you to synchronize, adjust, and main‐
       tain the system clocks in a distributed network. The DTS	 control  pro‐
       gram commands are listed below: The advertise command, which configures
       the DTS server as a global server The change  command,  which  modifies
       the  epoch  and	sets  the local time to a new time The create command,
       which establishes a DTS entity (a clerk or server) The delete  command,
       which  causes  DTS to exit on the local node The disable command, which
       suspends a DTS entity The enable command, which starts a DTS entity The
       exit  command,  which ends the dtscp management session and returns you
       to the system prompt The help command which invokes the dtscp help ser‐
       vice.   The  quit  command, which ends the dtscp management session and
       returns you to the system prompt The set command, which modifies	 char‐
       acteristics of a DTS entity The show command, which displays character‐
       istics of a DTS entity The synchronize command, which synchronizes  the
       system clock with the time obtained from DTS servers in the network The
       unadvertise command, which removes the global server entry  The	update
       command, which gradually adjusts the system clock to a new time

       For more information on any of the above dtscp commands, see the appro‐
       priate reference page in this chapter.

       The dtsd command restarts the DTS daemon	 (clerk	 or  server  process).
       When  the  host	system is rebooted, this command is automatically exe‐
       cuted as part of the overall  DCE  configuration	 procedure.  For  more
       information, see the dtsd reference page in this chapter.

       Invocation  of  dtsd  leaves  it	 in  an idle state. In order for it to
       assume an identity, it must be ``created'' with the dtscp  create  com‐

       After  the  DTS	entity	is  created,  it is still in a non-functioning
       state. To put it into operation, you must invoke	 dtscp	enable,	 which
       causes  an  immediate  synchronization to take place. For more informa‐
       tion, see the enable reference page in this chapter.

       To bring down a DTS entity, you must first stop it with	dtscp  disable
       and  then  delete  it  with dtscp delete. For more information, see the
       disable and delete reference pages in this chapter.

       The dtsdate command sets the local clock of a system to be the same  as
       the  host remote_host, running a dtsd server.  For more information see
       the tsdate reference page in this chapter.

       Command: dtscp(1m) dtsdate(1m)
