time and date on procurve switches

Hey all,

Several of our procurve switches have the incorrect date and time.  We noticed it after 2 of them crashed.  Is there any reason to think the date and time being incorrect could cause a problem leading to a failure like this?  Or is the only reason to care about the date/time being correct for the sake of accurate logging?  Obviously, we corrected the date and time, but I'm wondering if it is a symptom of something else? or if it can create problems by itself? or if it is nothing to worry about?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Julie

Re: time and date on procurve switches

I don't think it's anything to worry about and should not be the cause of a switch crash. I have seen plenty of Procurve switches over the years with incorrect date and time and have never seen any issues besides log entries having wrong time.
