System date and time

The Time Zone settings enables you to set the date and time for the Citrix ADC appliance. When you set your time zone, you must configure the same local time and date in Citrix ADC GUI and CLI. To change the local time zone, you must use the shell interface to the underlying FreeBSD OS. However, to view the system date and time, you can use the command line interface or the GUI.
