FireSIGHT dashboard Timezone

Hi,

I using FireSIGHT version 5.4.1.5

Although I have updated the Time zone ( Admin -> User Preference -> Time Zone Preference)

Howerver, the Overview dashboard timezone still using UTC. Not follow my Time Zone setup

Also, under FireSIGHT VM console I can see system time is using UTC.  Not sure is it caused the problem.

Please advise how to adjust FIRESIGHT dashboard time zone following my setup?

Thanks!

Same bug in 6.0.0.1

poor design by the FP

poor design by the FP designer on the system date and time.

the system time DOES NOT match that of the ASa or what is set in the ASDM.

i cant find any means to set the time zone

TAC warns not to set the timezone via Linux CLI

the gui does not permit timezone chnages

both the ASA(EST) and the FP(ZULU/UTC) point to the same NTP time source. yet the time on both are different by 6 hours

PLEASE CISCO   & TAC tell us how to set the timezone on the FP Linux system as well as set DST

Hi,

Hi,

CLI will only have UTC timezone that is expected.

Check this : http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/firesight/541/user-guide/FireSIGHT-System-UserGuide-v5401/User-Preferences.html#pgfId-3285179

Re: FireSIGHT dashboard Timezone

I'm not sure exactly which release fixed your issue but the current 6.2.2 release does not have the problem with the GUI. The cli shell will continue to use UTC.

 

The OP's 5.4.x release is quite old and all organizations running older releases should strongly consider upgrading for many reasons.

Re: FireSIGHT dashboard Timezone

@Marvin Rhoads it seems like your dashboard is 12 hours off. 21:20 is 9:20PM.

 

My dashboard is 5 hours off, and this is on a fresh install of 6.2.2

Re: FireSIGHT dashboard Timezone

Just a note, in the widget configuration the small "v" you can change to timezone for that widget.

Re: FireSIGHT dashboard Timezone

Hi Marvin,

 

I just updated to 

cat /etc/os.conf
OSVERSION=6.2.3

 

Can I tweak/change timezone on the shell? Current config:

cat /etc/localtime

TZif2UTCTZif2UTC
UTC0

Cisco recommends customer NOT change the timezone from the cli.

 

I'm told it can cause unintended consequences with the database structures.

Re: FireSIGHT dashboard Timezone

Then I am left with no possibility to change the timezone?

Re: FireSIGHT dashboard Timezone

The command shell and syslog events will use UTC.

 

The Application will use the timezone configured in the GUI. As noted earlier, some dashboard widgets may be preset to use Americas/New York but that can be changed in the individual widget settings.
