Set clock time zone

Is there a way to set the time zone on routers/switches? We're in the Eastern time zone, but some of my switches show UTC (Greenwich Mean Time/Zulu time). I'd like all of them to show the local time, just to make it easier to read.

Patrick,

You can.

Router(config)# clock timezone <(-23) - (23) ;Hours offset from UTC>

F.e Router(config)# clock timezone CST -6

Re: Set clock time zone

Toshi has provided the syntax the modify the timezone in the router (btw, Eastern time zone in the US is EST -5).

If you want to see this time being stamped on the log, you need the 'service timestamps' command which can be applied to log messages as well as debug messages
