Setting time on CS-MARS 4.1

How and where do you configure the time settings in the GUI?


Re: Setting time on CS-MARS 4.1

Below are the steps to configure the time settings:

Step 1 Access the command line interface of the appliance.

Step 2 Enter timezone set to specify the timezone in which the appliance is running.

Set each Local Controller to the same timezone as the reporting devices that it monitors. Set the Global Controller to the Global Controller's local time zone. The timezone set command uses a sequence of menu selections to set the timezone. The menu order is continent/country/region. The option to set a POSIX TZ variable is also available.

Step 3 To specify the current time and date in accordance with the specified timezone, do one of the following:

-Identify the NTP servers as follows:

a. Enter ntp server to identify the server.

b. Enter ntp sync to force a synchronization with the server.

If an NTP server is unavailable, manually specify the date and time for this appliance as follows:

a. Enter date to specify the date in mm/dd/yyyy format.

b. Enter time to specify the time in hh:mm:ss format.

Step 4 Enter reboot to reboot the appliance and re-initialize all the processes using the changed time/date settings.
