Time wrong on OMSA EMS Log

Hello,

I have recently come across an issue with about 12 of our servers, they seem to display the wrong time and date in the EMS log but the correct time and date in the Alert and Command log and I can't seem to see a reason for why this would be. 

 

I have checked the settings between a server that reports the correct time with a server that reports an incorrect time and there seems to be in difference as far as I can tell.

 

Anyone got any ideas?

Re: Time wrong on OMSA EMS Log

Hello

I suggest checking the time settings in the iDRAC. If nothing is configured then it should use the system time. If NTP is configured then it should be pulling the time from the NTP server with a configurable time zone. If it is using the system time then check the time and date configured in the system BIOS.

The server don't have iDrac they only have BMC can this be done still?

NTP may not be an option with the BMC, but you should still be able to review the system time.
