Managing Time Zones

This chapter includes the following sections:

Time Zones

Cisco UCS requires an instance-specific time zone setting and an NTP server to ensure the correct time display in Cisco UCS Manager. If you do not configure both of these settings in a Cisco UCS instance, the time does not display correctly.

Setting the Time Zone

Procedure
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1 UCS-A# scope system  

Enters system mode.

 
Step 2 UCS-A /system # scope services  

Enters system services mode.

 
Step 3 UCS-A /system/services # set timezone    
Step 4 At this point, you are prompted to enter a number corresponding to your continent, country, and time zone region. Enter the appropriate information at each prompt.    
Step 5 When you have finished specifying the location information, you are prompted to confirm that the correct time zone information is being set. Enter 1 (yes) to confirm, or 2 (no) to cancel the operation.    

The following example configures the timezone to the Americas continent, United States country, and Pacific time zone region:

UCS-A# scope system
UCS-A /system # scope services
UCS-A /system/services # set timezone
