First you need to CLI into your Meetingplace Express box:
Next you have to sign in as an administrator and super user, su. After
that you need to run the date command:
* Date MonthMonthDayDayHourHourMinMin
As you can see, it in two digit intervals, for example, if I want to
change the time from 6:00AM to 7:30AM of today date:
1. Date 03120700
a. March 12, 2009 7:00AM
2. Date 03120730
a. March 12, 2009 7:30AM
To change the time zone, please type in timezone and do the necessary
changes. As long as you do not change the date and time, you should be
The time zone command sets the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system local
The timezone command sets the time zone used for CLI commands. It also
sets the local time zone for end users. The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace
system lists all the available time zones, by continent and city. Choose
the city that is in the same time zone as the local site.
Bring up the following options by entering timezone:
1) Europe-Brings up a screen of time zones for Europe.
2) Far East-Brings up a screen of time zones for Asia and Australia.
3) North America-Brings up a screen of time zones for North America.
99) quit-Quits the timezone command.
Hope it helps.

the link you provided does not work. Can you post it again?
Can you elaborate on the exact syntax of the command?
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]$ time zone
-bash: zone: command not found
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]$ time ?
-bash: ?: command not found
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]$ show timezone
-bash: show: command not found
On MeetingPlace Express I think most settings were accessed by running the 'net' command. It brings up a menu with various system settings.
It's been some time though..
Aaron, the net command allows to configure DNS, NTP, hostname,... but not the timezone.
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]$ net
Running "sudo" to get root permission...
This is the MeetingPlace Express network configuration utility.
Up to the point where you save changes, it is safe to hit ^C to get
out at any time, in which case nothing will have changed.
1) List current configuration
2) Configure Ethernet port 1
3) Configure Ethernet port 2
4) Set host names
5) Set domain name
6) Configure DNS service
7) Configure NTP service
To change the timezone:
-Log on to the MPE server as mpxadmin, then SU to root.
-Edit the "/etc/sysconfig/clock" file and change the name to match your desired timezone (Zone="America/New_York")
-Relink the "/etc/localtime" file to the correct timezone by "ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York localtime" substituting your timezone file for "America/New_York"
-Issue the reboot command for the changes to take effect. This will disconnect all users from any active conferences.
Hope this helps,
I did as you told, but after the reboot MPX shows the same timezone:
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]$ date
Tue Apr 3 10:42:57 CEST 2012 <-- 10:42 should be 9:42
I tried to set it to CET timezone:
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]# ls -l /etc/localtime
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Apr 3 10:00 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/CET
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]# ls -l localtime
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Apr 3 09:37 localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/CET
[mpxadmin@TNSVMPCS01A6 mpxadmin]# vi /etc/sysconfig/clock
