Setting time to EST instead of UTC / Timecard view issue/ not synching

Hi everyone,

Need some help. I have a UC 520. using timecard view. I'm exporting the data from cisco historical reports client. When I look at the data, the times are off by about 5 hours. If I log into the phone, it will show the correct time.

(example 11/2 frank in since 10:00am)

When I goto the historical reports client and pull my user activity report is show my start time as 05:00

I'm currently running ios version 12.4(20)T2

cisco unity express 7.0.3

I have the UC pointed to a external ntp server (read a post about a issue with synch in a order ios version)

ntp server  (go penn state!!!!) But for some reason, the cue will not synch

UC520#sho ntp associations

Trying to figure out why this will not synch up correctly

Re: Setting time to EST instead of UTC / Timecard view issue/ no

Can you capture the output of "show clock" from the UC 500? What's the timezone setting on CUE? Could you have an incorrect timezone configured?

UC520#sho clock
12:09:05.023 est Mon Nov 2 2009

UC520(config)#clock timezone cst -6
UC520#sh clo
11:11:25.492 cst Mon Nov 2 2009

changed it to cst

Re: Setting time to EST instead of UTC / Timecard view issue/ no

Thank. sCan you capture the output from both UC500 and CUE at the same time? Also, it will be helpful to look at the NTP/Timezone/clock configurations on both the UC500 and the CUE.
