How to change timezone on LWAPP AP

Unanswered Question
Dec 1st, 2009

LWAPP AP gets time from the WLC, and displays in UTC time, which is the correct time. Is there a way to change the timezone on the LWAPP AP? Links? Commands?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

No.

The AP gets it's time from the WLC via a CAPWAP AC Timestamp message (RFC-5415 sec. 4.6.6).  Since the AP has no way to set the timezone, the AP will always use UTC.

that would be correct for an IOS AP, but not for LWAPP/CAPWAP

Those commands do not hold through a reboot.  I just telneted to an AP and put the commands in, set the offset, saved and rebooted and the AP is back to UTC.

Generally if you have access to a command on a lightweight AP, what ever you change doesn't hold, since you are not able to actually save.

I've tried that command. I even tried to save it to the local configs on ap (bad idea). Don't ever do that, it would mess up the LWAPP.
