This topic describes how to synchronize the date and time settings on the hypervisor and the LEM VM.

The LEM VM is configured to synchronize with the hypervisor date and time by default. If the time is off by more than five minutes, the LEM rules will not operate properly.

  1. Open the CMC command line. See Log in to the LEM CMC command line interface for steps.

  2. Update the time zone in your LEM Manager:
    1. At the cmc> prompt, type appliance and press Enter.
    2. At the cmc::appliance> prompt, type dateconfig and press Enter.
    3. Press enter and enter the current date in month/day/year format (MM/DD/YYYY).
    4. At the cmc::appliance> prompt, type tzconfig and press Enter.
    5. Press enter and follow the onscreen prompts to configure the time zone.
    6. At the cmc::appliance> prompt, type exit and press Enter to return to the main menu.
  3. Update the time in your hypervisor:

    1. At the cmc> prompt, type manager and press Enter.

    2. At the cmc::manager> prompt, type viewsysinfo and press Enter.
