HP 3Com System Clock configuration flushed after reboot

Hi,

 

I would like to ask if is there a way to configure the System clock locally for a HP 3Com E5500G and E4210 switches.

 

The documentation says that through the clock command from user view, it  can be changed and it is right, but after a reboot the time is flushed and the clock time is reset to default.

 

Im doing it like this:

 

<5500G> clock date time 08:48:00 2011/08/05

<5500G> clock timezone COLOMBIA minus 05:00:00

 

and a display clock shows the right information but after a reboot the config is vanished.

 

Is it possible to setup locally or it has to be configured via NTP ?

 

Thank you very much.

Just use NTP, should be pretty much mandatory in a network anyways ;]

Re: HP 3Com System Clock configuration flushed after reboot

Hey Fredrik, i appreciate your input, and i agree that a centralized NTP service would have huge advantages for events across distributed devices, but at this very moment it is difficult for me to have access to a NTP server from the swicthes side and i really would like to be able to setup the time locally, it is strange to me that it couldn't be done.

Thank you.
