CME Time is Caracas Venezuela

I have a customer with a CME is Caracas Venezuela.  The time zone there is 30 minutes ahead of the US, which is Zone 12 in Telephony-Service.  Please let me know how to offset the time displayed on the phone by 30 minutes.

Hi Scott,

Couldn't you use;

Router(config)# telephony-service

Router(config-telephony)# time-zone 54

Usage Guidelines

This command works with the vendorConfig section of the Sep*.conf.xml configuration file, which is read by the phone firmware when the Cisco IP Phone is booted up. Certain phones, such as the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906 , 7911, 7931, 7941, 7942, 7945, 7961, 7962, 7965, 7970 , 7971, and 7975, obtain Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) from the clock of the Cisco router. To display the correct local time, the time display on these phones must be offset by using this command.

This command is not required for Cisco Unified IP Phone 7902G, 7905G, 7912G, 7920, 7921, 7935, 7936, 7940, 7960, or 7985G.

For changes to the time-zone settings take effect, the Sep*.conf.xml file must be updated by using the create cnf-files command and the Cisco IP phones must rebooted by using the reset command.
