Configuring date and time
This section presents the following topics:
- Setting the date
- Manually synchronizing with an NTP server
- Setting the time zone
- Using NTP for automatic synchronization
Date and time can be either set manually or obtained by manually or automatically synchronizing the system with one or more Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers. The time zone must be manually set and may be specified as an offset from Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) or as one of a number of supported literal time zones.
In this section, sample configurations are presented for maintaining date and time information. The following figure shows the sample date and time information.
