I'm not familiar with Solaris. I've never worked with a 58503A, but I have
worked with the Z3801A and KS-24361.
I'd try ntpd. There is probably a version that comes with Solaris.
USB probably doesn't support PPS. I'd expect time to be within ballpark of
10s of ms, roughly what you would expect with a good network connection so
use that as a sanity check.
You will need to setup your ntp.conf to use the HP driver, 26.
You will need to setup your 58503A to use UTC in T2 mode.
:diag:gps:utc 1 (and reboot?)
You can check the GPS/UTC setting on the status page, and check the T2
setting by sending:
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
