Part Number

If your configuration includes SVP for the external management server, you need to ensure that the clock and the time zone settings on the SVP matches those of the controller clock.

Complete the following steps to change the Windows 8.1 date and time on the SVP

  • The management console is connected to the LAN 2 port on the SVP.
  • The console has established a remote desktop connection with the SVP. Note that the connection cannot be established when you use Remote Desktop Session Host.
  • The management utility window is displayed on the console.
  • Storage systems are not registered in the Storage Device List.
  • If storage systems are registered in the Storage Device List, before changing the SVP clock settings, click Stop Service for all registered storage systems in the Storage Device List window.
  1. Log in to the management console that is connected to the SVP.
  2. On the Windows 8.1 desktop, click Start > Control Panel.
  3. Click Clock, Language, and Region.
  4. Click Date and Time.
  5. Click Change date and time. The Date and Time Settings window opens.
  6. Set the date and time, then click OK to save the settings.
  7. Click Change time zone. The Time Zone Settings windows opens.
  8. Select the time zone, then click OK.
    Note: If you do not restart the background service, time zone changing is not reflected. So time zone remain the different settings between SVP and storage system and this state cause any fails.
