In this post, we will see a common NTP issue on IBM AIX server and its quick resolution.
"ntpq: read: A remote host refused an attempted connect operation."
It's not what it seems. The xntpd subsystem is probably not running.
The solution is to start the xntpd service on the server.
Lets see how to do this
# startsrc -s xntpd 0513-059 The xntpd Subsystem has been started. Subsystem PID is 37748910.
