NAME
     rdate - set system date from a remote host

SYNOPSIS
     rdate hostname

DESCRIPTION
     rdate sets the local date and time from the  hostname  given
     as   an   argument.   You   must   have   the  authorization
     solaris.system.date on the local system. Typically, rdate is
     used in a startup script.

     rdate requests are responded to by the "time" service on the
     specified  host.  To enable the "time" service, use the fol-
     lowing commands:

     svcadm enable time:stream
     svcadm enable time:dgram
