rx2660 MP date and time

Hi,

Can any one tell me how to set MP date and time. When i run "date" command it only display me date and time but no option to set it.

===========================
[drn2] MP:CM> date


DATE

Current Date and Time: 06/18/2009 05:18:32


[drn2] MP:CM>
===========================

Please help me.

Re: rx2660 MP date and time

Given your post appeared at 05:23 GMT, and the time you reported from your MP was 05:18 GMT, my guess would be that the MP does everything in GMT (UTC) and does not have nor apply a timezone adjustment. I seem to recall previous discussions along those lines.

Re: rx2660 MP date and time

When you set the date/time in the OS (the "date" command in HP-UX), the time is automatically converted into UTC according to your timezone/DST settings and copied to the MP clock.

The internal representation of time in Unix systems is fundamentally tied to the UTC, and the MP clock design reflects that.
