Date format on Procurve

Date format on Procurve

I have trouble finding how to change the date format on a ProCurve 2910. I want to use either DD.MM.YYYY (Norwegian std format) or ISO 8601 DDDD-MM-YY, but can't find how to change from US format MM/DD/YY. Have a feeling that the option simply is missing, but HP does not want to sell ProCurves only in the US?

Re: Date format on Procurve

Hello,

AFAIK there is no way to re-define the date format.

timesync sntp
sntp unicast
sntp 30
sntp server priority 1 "IP Address of your time server" 3

and mine shows

Re: Date format on Procurve

I know, but this and many other ProCurve's is not in the US, and I'd like to have a more normal presentation of the date, either have the option to use Norwegian format, which is dd.mm.yy or dd.mm.yyyy, or at least to be able to use ISO 8601 format, yyyy-mm-dd. I simply can not understand that just since the stuff is partly made up in the US, they can't use formats more common outside the US. OK that HP exports ProCurve, but they don't have to try to export their date format.
