Setting the time for a cluster

You can manually set or modify the time zone for your cluster by using the Edit Date and Time dialog box in System Manager. You can also add time servers to the cluster.

About this task

Network Time Protocol (NTP) is always enabled on the cluster. You can disable NTP (not recommended) by contacting technical support.

You can add the IP addresses of the NTP server at your site. This server is used to synchronize the time across the cluster.

You can specify either an IPv4 address or an IPv6 address for the time server.

  4. In the Edit Date and Time dialog box, select the time zone.
  5. Specify the IP address of the time servers and click Add.
  6. Click OK.
