I have a FTD HA managed by FMC.
Can we have 2 différent timezones and 2 différents NTP servers on each device ?
the thing is that the FMC is managing many world wide sites and each site should have his own timezone.
You can have NTP servers configured for each FTD separately in platform settings and define NTP only for FMC under system>configuration >time.
Please do not change anything on the CLI side but on GUI you can change the FMC timezone as desired.
If there are individual units of FTD implementation worldwide, domains can be created on FMC and each FTD assigned to respective domain.
Rate if helps,
Please do not change the system time (from CLI ) from UTC on either FMC or FTD.
It can corrupt the database and cause more problems than solve it.
You can control it from platform settings of FMC.
Hope that helps,
Thank you Yogesh.
But from FMC , I can not find where to change the timezone only for one FTD ( MY FMC is managing several FTDs)
In platform settings I only can add my local NTP server:
I have a similar Question.
My FMC runs on local time zone. The FTD Devices are getting there time to the FMC and remain as explained int UTC.
The issue arises when one compares the Logs between the FMC and an external Syslog-Server.
The logs in the FMC are shown in local time while the syslogs from the FTD are send to the syslog in UTC. This is quite confusing for troubleshooting.
How can this be solved?
The following document is of no help in this respect.
You can set the timezone for FMC users under User Preferences - Time Zone Preferences.
When logged into FMC, go to to the username in the upper right hand corner select <username> User Preferneces
This should display all time entries in the timezone you choose.
