    Setting the Date and Time

    Use this procedure to set the system date and time when NTP servers are not available. This procedure is executed in operational mode.

    Note: Changing the time affects PMs. For more information, see Effect of a Time Change on PMs.

    1. Set the date and time.

      For example:

      bti7800# system clock set-date-time 2017-07-26T13:49:46
      NOTE: If the system is using NTP, date and time would be overridden by 
      NTP. Proceed? [no,yes] yes 
      bti7800# 
    2. Warm reload the CMMs for the time change to take effect.
      1. Determine which CMM is active and which CMM is standby.

        For example:

        bti7800# show system | include Controller
        Active Controller         : cmm:1/A
        Backup Controller         : cmm:1/B
      2. Warm reload the standby/backup CMM.

        For example:

        bti7800# system reload warm cmm:1/B

        Wait until the standby CMM finishes reloading before proceeding to the next step. The standby CMM is finished reloading when the HA Status is In Sync, for example:

        bti7800# show system | include HA
        HA Status                 : In Sync
        
      3. Warm reload the active CMM.

        For example:

        bti7800# system reload warm cmm:1/A

        Your CLI session terminates as the active CMM reloads.

      4. Once the CMM finishes reloading, log back in to the CLI and verify your settings by displaying the new settings. This might take several minutes.

        For example:

        bti7800# show system clock | include current
        current-datetime          : 2017-07-26T13:53:50-04:00
        

        Note: The T delineates the date from the time. The time shown is the local time in the specified timezone. The timezone is indicated by the UTC offset, which in the above example is UTC-04:00.
