How to Configure Date and Time

You can change the date and time of the SD-WAN Center management system either manually or by using an NTP server. If you select the Use NTP server option, then you cannot manually enter a current date and time.

To manually set the date and time:

  1. In the SD-WAN Center web interface, click the Administration tab.

  2. Click Global Settings, ** and then click **Timezone.

  3. In the Time Zone field, select a city in your current time zone. Alternatively, enter the current date and time for your time zone.

  4. Click Apply.

    You can synchronize the SD-WAN Center clock with an external NTP server.

    To set the date and time by using an NTP Server:

    1. In the SD-WAN Center web interface, click the Administration tab.

    2. Click Global Settings and then click TimeZone.

    3. Select Use NTP Server.

  5. To add a new NTP server, click the + icon next to NTP Server .

  6. In the Address field, enter the IP Address for the NTP Server.

    You can specify up to three NTP servers, but you must specify at least one. These act as backup NTP servers, if one server is down the SD-WAN Center automatically synchronizes with the other NTP server.

    If you specify a domain name for an NTP server, you must also configure a DNS server unless you have already done so. To remove a server entry from the table, click the Delete icon in the Delete column of the entry.

  7. Click Verify to verify that the server is reachable, before applying your settings.

  8. Click Apply.
