Managing Time Zones

This chapter includes the following sections:

Time Zones

Cisco UCS requires a domain-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 domain, the time does not display correctly.

Setting the Time Zone

Procedure
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1UCS-A# scope system  

    Enters system mode.

     
    Step 2UCS-A /system # scope services  

    Enters system services mode.

     
    Step 3UCS-A /system/services # set timezone  

    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.

    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.

     
    Step 4UCS-A /system/services # commit-buffer  

    Commits the transaction to the system configuration.

     
    Step 5UCS-A /system/services # exit  

    Enters system mode.

     
    Step 6UCS-A /system/services # exit  

    Enters EXEC mode.

     
    Step 7UCS-A /system/services # show timezone  

    Displays the configured timezone.

     

    The following example configures the time zone to the Pacific time zone region, commits the transaction, and displays the configured time zone:

    UCS-A# scope system
    UCS-A /system # scope services
    UCS-A /system/services # set timezone
    Please identify a location so that time zone rules can be set correctly.

    Adding an NTP Server

    Procedure
       Command or ActionPurpose
      Step 1UCS-A# scope system  

      Enters system mode.

       
      Step 2UCS-A /system # scope services  

      Enters system services mode.

       
      Step 3UCS-A /system/services # create ntp-server {hostname | ip-addr}  

      Configures the system to use the NTP server with the specified hostname or IP address.

       
      Step 4UCS-A /system/services # commit-buffer  

      Commits the transaction to the system configuration.

       

      The following example configures an NTP server with the IP address 192.168.200.101 and commits the transaction:

      UCS-A# scope system
      UCS-A /system # scope services
      UCS-A /system/services # create ntp-server 192.168.200.101
      UCS-A /system/services* # commit-buffer
      UCS-A /system/services #

      Procedure
         Command or ActionPurpose
        Step 1UCS-A# scope system  

        Enters system mode.

         
        Step 2UCS-A /system # scope services  

        Enters system services mode.

         
        Step 3UCS-A /system/services # delete ntp-server {hostname | ip-addr}  

        Deletes the NTP server with the specified IP address.

         

        The following example deletes the NTP server with the IP address 192.168.200.101 and commits the transaction:

        UCS-A# scope system
        UCS-A /system # scope services
        UCS-A /system/services # delete ntp-server 192.168.200.101
