DCNM: can not change/edit NTP Settings on Data Center Network Manager LAN Fabric 10.5(1)

Hello Community,
anyone else frustrated with their Data Center Network Manager LAN Fabric 10.5(1) ?
This is supposed to be the Management Tool for the Nexus Switches, but I've been spending more time reporting TAC-CASES and finding/report bugs, instead of using it as a valued Tool to manage our companies Nexus 7k and 9k Series Switches.

Now I discovered, go on the CLI and enter the command 

  # date

And I see my NTP actual time is off 9 hours
I cannot find in the GUI where I can edit my NTP settings ? ( Nothing in the GUI: Administration/Server Settings/... )

Since it's a RHEL OS, I could make changes on the CLI, but that would not be supported ?

Heads-UP:Man, if you've used Cisco Prime over the years and now are trying to get the DCNM up and running and migrate your Nexus n7k, n9k, ASR Switches. Then you are in for a lot of frustration

Can someone help me, point me in the right direction. That would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards, Scottie

Hi @sdnscottie, maybe is too late for this reply but
The Release DCNM 10.5(1) version doesn't exist,

Are you refering to 11.5(1)?

You can update NTP from GUI from 11.5(1) onwards:
Ability to update network parameters

Cisco DCNM allows you to modify few network parameters from the Web UI. Modifying these overwrite the previously configured parameters. Choose Cisco DCNM Web UI > Admin > DCNM Server > Customization > Network Preferences to modify the DNS, NTP, and addition or removal of static routes over the out-of-band (eth1) and inband (eth2) interfaces.

If it is DCNM 10.4(2) then you have to do it through cli with the CentOs/RHEL commands and then restart DCNM service

Hello aortizhe,

thank you, that was helpful. Yes, we are currently using 11.5(1)

We solved the problem using the CLI:

appmgr set-timezone CET

appmgr update network-properties session apply

appmgr stop all

appmgr start all

Kind Regards, Scottie
