I have a 5508 WLC and a series of 1140 APs. One small but annoying thing I have noticed is that the APs are pulling the correct time from the WLC but the timezone is off so they are showing time at 0 and not -8. The timezone is set and correct on the WLC. Any ideas?
it seems yes some gave me +1 s/he may not found my answer useful. Anyway, CAPWAP has nothing to mention about time zone on AP as I went through the RFC quickly but nothing mentioned.
TAC engineer is just a user like us with more advanced experience and more resources to touch. But s/he does not know about code and implementation or products from inside. RFC is the judge here because any vendor is going to implement CAPWAP will refer to it. It shows nothing about time-zone on APs.
I remember TAC case a year ago about almost same thing that autonomous APs were showing logs in UTC although SNTP is showing the clock with correct time (correct time-zone shift).
As I mentioned before, there was a command that should be used to define the timezone for the logs to be shifted from UTC/GMT. I have the PST file for that time saved in some external HD or else I would have searched for the commands if I am still having the PST file internally. Maybe later I do it when I have the time and bring the commands.
