Did you ever get this resolved?  If so what was the resolution?

Re: Incorrect time on CME phone display.


you can configure as below and it will help

router (config)# clock tomezone (name) (x)

router(config)# clock summer-time

Thank you

Hi, I have the same issue, I could resolved it pointing to a NTP server because my clock on CME was incorrect. What is your IOS version? Regards.

I had the same problem too

I had the same problem too and I solved it as follow:

router(config)# clock timezone zone hours-offset

router(config-telephony)# clock time-zone number
