Thanks for the many responses. The problem was, as many suggested, different
timezones on AIX and Solaris.
In the end setting TZ=GMT-1 on Solaris seemed to do the trick.

" I am attempting to synhronise the time on my Solaris 8 server with a AIX
" server using xntpd. (I already synchronise a number of AIX boxes OK)
" However when I run
" rdate aixserver
"  it returns time that is 2 hours behind the time on the AIX server!.
" Any explaination?

different timezones?

if you're gonna use xntp, why rdate and not ntpdate?
