HP ProLiant BL p-Class GbE2 Interconnect Switch question

Hi all,
I have this issue with two of these switches.

What I need to know is:
If I rest the date and time to current date and time what would be the impact on the blades hosted buy these switches?

Could I use DNS entries as apposed to a single IP address on the NTP configuration? We use three round robin time servers on the network so have multiple IP addresses and noted in the docs that can only use single IP address.

After I have made the changes would these switches require a restart to ensure the change is permanent and does not change back?

Mark:

there will be no impact to the blades connected to these switches when you set the date and time on the switch,

You have to use IP addresses to specify the primary and secondaty NTP server. Unfortunately you can't use DNS.

The switches would not need a restart, just apply and save the config...
