Event Viewer shows wrong time.

I have Security Monitor 2.1.0 (Build 123) in a CW VMS 2.3. It collect events from some IOS IPS. The IOS IPS have the correct time. The events generated in the device has the correct time (I can see it with "show log" command).

In the device, with "show clock" command, it shows UTC Timezone. The Server has GMT Central Time (US & Canada).

When I want to monitor in event viewer events from the last "x" minutes, it shows the events of the last "x" minutes, but the events shows in the local time column a wrong time. It shows time of 5 or 6 hours before of the correct time.

Why is it happened? Which is the base from local time column? It can shows the correct time without use "clock timezone" command in the devices and not changing the timezone of the server?

Re: Event Viewer shows wrong time.

Try checking the Time Zone you are using on your VMS server. It should be the same with the TimeZone that the sensor is using.
