time range not respecting time zone?

  • 1.  time range not respecting time zone?

    Posted Sep 30, 2019 04:35 PM

    I have a network that uses a time range.  Since upgrading to 8.3.0.9_72226 that network stops working at the wrong time.  I had to disable the time range to get that network back up.  The problem might also be the wrong the system time.  It is currently 3:21 PM CT (Chicago, IL, USA),

    show clock says it is

    # show clock

    Current Time :2019-09-30 20:21:23

    I do have ntp setup

    show log iap-bootup | i NTP
    NTP server 172.19.40.1 from configuration

    so I think either the time range is not respecting the time zone or the system is not respecting the time zone.  What do you think?

    Show clock should display the local time in your time zone. NTP uses UTC/GMT by standard and it looks like your AP shows the time in UTC.

     

    Did you set the timezone?

     

    My 8.5 AP has the following command to verify:

     

    IAP303H-1a:68# show clock timezone
    
    Current Timezone
    ----------------
    Country    Timezone  DST Name  DST Recurring
    -------    --------  --------  -------------
    Amsterdam  UTC+01    CEST      last sunday march 02:00 last sunday october 03:00
    
    IAP303H-1a:68# show clock
    
    Current Time     :2019-10-03 09:24:21
    

    and 09:24:21 is my local time. UTC time now is 07:24:21.

    I just upgraded to ArubaInstant_Centaurus_8.5.0.3_72498 and the problem remains.

    #show clock timezone

    Current Timezone
    ----------------
    Country Timezone DST Name DST Recurring
    ------- -------- -------- -------------
    Central-Time UTC-06 CDT second sunday march 02:00 first sunday november 02:00
    # show clock

    Current Time :2019-10-09 01:09:02

    The time is 8:09 PM October 8, 2019.

     

    Is there a way to verify that NTP is working correctly?
