NTP settings on MSA2312fc

I have 2 x MSA2312fc with dual controllers.

I have enabled the NTP within the date and time settings and chosen an internal NTP server.

For some reason my time is an hour behind?

It should be UK time?

I have checked the NTP server and all seems working as alot of equipment is running off this server?

This is affecting both MSA's?

Check the timezone and Daylight Saving Time settings.

The NTP protocol transfers UTC time, which never observes any Daylight Saving Time (also known as Summer Time) rules.

UK time is equal to UTC time in the winter, when the DST/Summer Time rules are not in effect. In the summer, UK time is UTC + 1 hour.

Where is this on the SMU for the MSA?

Re: NTP settings on MSA2312fc

Theoretically, the setting for the time zone is:
MSA2312fc > Configuration > System Settings > Date, Time > NTP Time Zone Offset

Problem is, as soon as you click save the value gets set back to zero. I guess this is a firmware bug that appears when NTP is configured.
