Hello all-

We have a 3945 CME located in our central office in Eastern timezone. I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to force the phones located in our branch offices in Central timezone to adjust the time display on screen. I know this is possible with Call Manager but wasnt sure if there was a way to force individual ephones to use different timezones with a Call Manager Express.

We are running the latest release of CME.

Thanks for your assistance!

Hello Kenny

I dont beilive that CME is able to use more than one time zone, the reason is because we dont have the "device pool" feature that we have in CUCM, in CME all the phones registers with the one CME that has an standar configuration.

Thanks for the quick response Walter.

Wasn't there a command on the ephone for adjusting timezone for an indidivudal phone? I thought there was another way to adjust time besides setting up the device pools and assigning the phone to the site? Or perhaps some way I could assign a different NTP server with Central timezone offset for certain phones??

As Walter explained above (rated), unfortunately it is not possible to do that.
