    Date & Time Configuration

    Date & Time Configuration

    Nodeum Date & Time management follow these principles rules:

    • Server Operating System Date & Time is set in UTC.
    • In the background, the Nodeum scheduler uses the UTC time as a time reference. Conversions to your local timezone are done automatically by the application.
    • Nodeum WebGui is using Browser Time.

    Important Note:

    Time Offset between your browser and the Operating System of the server which host Nodeum can't be higher than 15 min. If this is the case, you can see such kind of error message in the Nodeum WebGui:

    To avoid this situation, it is important to configure the Date & Time settings properly, and using the NTP mode is highly recommended.

    Operating System Date & Time

    Date & Time can be configured in going in the menu Settings / Date & Time. The Date & Time can be configured in two different ways:

    • Configuring manually the system date & time
    • Use NTP service to synchronize the system date & time

    Manual Setting

    You have to configure Date & Time in Manual configuration and set the right Date and Time. Time has to be configured in UTC.NTP

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

    Select NTP in the configuration and define the list of NTP Servers you want to use as time references.
