    Date & Time Configuration

    Configuration

    The Date & Time can be set :

    • NTP
    • Manual

    NTP

    Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a protocol for synchronizing the clocks of different computer systems and have matching times across the platforms.

    If you choose NTP configuration for the server the Timezone is set on UTC Time.

     

    NTP configuration is mandatory if NODEUM has to be connected to an Active Directory server. In an Active Directory environment, it is very important for all clocks to be within 5 minutes of each other (by default) due to the implementation of the Kerberos protocol for authentication.

     

    Manual Setting

    To configure manually the Time and Date, unselect the use of NTP and configure the correct Date and Time.

     


     

    UTC

    Server Operating System is defined to work in UTC.

    The Nodeum GUI is using the Browser Time ; and the application use the local time set with the NTP.
    In the background, the Nodeum scheduling use the UTC time as time reference. Conversions are done automatically by the application.

    Important :

    Time Offset between your app and server can not bigger than 15 min.  If this issue isn't resolved, you can't execute a task with Cloud.

    To avoid this situation, we advise to configure the date & Time of Nodeum in NTP Mode.
