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,
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.
Can someone assist with this please. Timezone is fine for FMC, the issue is on the FTD. NTP and Timezone were defined under platform settings of the FMC, however the time is still not correct and the timezone show as UTC on the cli of the FTD when i issue "show time"
Things i tried:
-Went to expert mode and checked if NTP is available and preferred.
-Restarted the NTP daemon
But the time is still not correct.
Have the same problem but on a FTD HA (All in same timezone and default group) Instance on a 4110 Chassis so time is set from the Chassis and tells you that on FMC. Does not matter what TimeZone you set (We are currently on UTC/GMT) it thinks localtime is running 4 hours behind in EDT. From CLI of chassis itself it shows correct TimeZone and time
