time range not respecting time zone?

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?

Re: time range not respecting time zone?

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.

Re: time range not respecting time zone?

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?
