Changing the SVP clock and time zone settings

System Administrator Guide for Virtual Storage Platform E Series

Part Number

If your configuration includes an SVP for external management servers, you need to ensure that the clock and the time zone settings on the SVP match those of the controller clock.
Note: The SVP supports Simple Network Time Protocol version 4 (SNTPv4) for date and time synchronization.
  • The management client must be connected to the LAN 2 port on the SVP.
  • The management client must have already established a remote desktop connection with the SVP. Note that the connection cannot be established when you use Remote Desktop Session Host.
  • If storage systems are registered in the Storage Device List, click Stop Service for all registered storage systems in the Storage Device List window before changing the SVP clock settings.
  1. Log in to the management client 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.
  6. In the Date and Time Settings window, set the date and time, and then click OK to save the settings.
  7. Click Change time zone.
  8. In the Time Zone Settings window, select the time zone, and then click OK.
    Note: If you do not restart the background service, the time zone change is not reflected. When the time zones remain different between the SVP and the storage system, this condition can cause error conditions.
