How to Set Airwave Clock

[ Edited ]

Here is how to set the clock in your Airwave server, both system clock and hardware clock. It HAS to be accomplished in CLI.

 

This was done in Airwave 8.2.0.3

 

1. How to check your time:

[root@Airwave mercury]# clock
Wed 15 Jun 2016 09:45:23 AM EDT -0.500183 seconds

 

2.Setting the clock and timezone setings:

[root@Airwave mercury]# cd /root/svn/mercury/install
[root@Airwave install]# ./time-setup

------------------------ Date and Time Configuration ---------------------


Current Time: Wed Jun 15 09:46:31 EDT 2016


1) Change Date and Time
2) Change Time Zone

0) Finish

* I have found that the timezone need to be set before setting the time as it adjusts the time if done second.

 

3. Check hardware clock:

[root@Airwave install]# hwclock
Wed 15 Jun 2016 09:47:27 AM EDT -0.062704 seconds

 

4. Sync the clocks (system and hardware):

[root@Airwave install]# hwclock --systohc

That directory doesn't exist in CentOS 6.6.

Hi,

 

We  moved from /root/svn/mercury directory to /root/git/mercury from 8.2.x

[root@localhost mercury]# pwd
/root/git/mercury
[root@localhost mercury]# cd install/
[root@localhost install]# ./time-setup

------------------------ Date and Time Configuration ---------------------


         Current Time: Fri Apr 14 06:55:34 EDT 2017


         1)  Change Date and Time
         2)  Change Time Zone

         0)  Finish

Pavan

Found the directory, it is off of git/.

I follow it all the way to TZ='America/New York' will be used.

It has local time at 2:10 in the afternoon when it is 10:10 in the morning. For some reason it thinks UTC is 6:10 PM.

I follow the directions and set America's/United States/Eastern and it has the local time 14:22:57 EDT 2017 which is 4 hours ahead.

It also shows UTC as 18:22:57.

Oy vey.

I belive you have set only the timezone, set the data and time manually.
