If a need arises to change the time zone outside of the installation process, perform one of the procedures below.

Changing the time zone forces a restart of the SBC application (for HA, both servers are affected) which causes a service outage for a few minutes. Sonus recommends changing the time zone only during a system maintenance window.

Change Time Zone From EMA

  1. From the EMA menu bar, select System Configuration > CDR and Servers > NTP Server

    Figure : NTP Server

           

  2. Select the system name from Time Zone drop-down menu. The system name and current time zone details display.

    Figure : Time Zone drop down menu

  3. Click the Edit icon next to the drop-down menu. The Edit Time Zone dialog displays.

    Figure : Edit Time Zone

  4. Select a new time zone from the Zone drop-down list, and click the Save icon.
  5. The application restarts (in HA configuration, the application restarts on both SBCs), and will take a few minutes to complete.
  6. Once the system comes back up, the new time zone is in effect.

Change Time Zone From CLI

  1. Login to CLI and switch to Configure mode.
    > configure
  2. To view current time zone, enter command:

    % show system ntp timeZone 
      timeZone FINCH { 
      zone gmtMinus07-Mountain; 
      }
  3. Enter following command to change time zone:

    % set system ntp timeZone <SYSTEM NAME> zone <time zone>
  4. To commit changes, enter commit and respond y when prompted.
    % commit
    The following warnings were generated:

    'system ntp timeZone FINCH': Changing timezone will restart application and impact service. Do you wish to continue? 
     Proceed? [yes,no] y
  5. The application restarts (in HA configuration, the application restarts on both SBCs).

  6. Once the system comes back up, the new time zone is in effect.
