Parameter Description
Current Time (AWI only) Displays the time based on the NTP.
Enable NTP (AWI only) Enable or disable the NTP feature.
Identify NTP Host by (AWI only) Select if the NTP host is identified by IP address or by Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). If NTP is disabled, this field is not required and is not editable. If you enter an invalid IP address or DNS name, a message appears to prompt you to correct it. The parameter depends on which method you choose.
  • IP Address: Shows the NTP Host IP address
  • FQDN: Shows the NTP Host DNS name.
NTP Host Port (AWI only) Configure the port number of the NTP server. The default NTP server port value is 123.
NTP Query Interval (AWI only) Configure the query interval. The first field is for the interval period and the second field is for the time unit in minutes, hours, days, or weeks.
Time Zone Select the local time zone.
Enable Daylight Saving Time (AWI only) Enable or disable the automatic adjustment for Daylight Saving Time (DST).

To configure time settings:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • From the OSD, select Options > User Settings > Region.
    • From the AWI, Configuration > Time.
  2. From the OSD Region page or the AWI Time page, update the time settings.
  3. To save your updates, click OK from the OSD, or click Apply from the AWI.

Server address overrides manually configured server

If the device is configured for DHCP and the DHCP server provides an NTP server address, this address will override any manually configured NTP server. It will also enable NTP if it is.

NTP server does not provide time zone information

The device does not obtain time zone or Daylight Saving Time information from the NTP server.

Enabling user events to correlate with log entries

To simplify system troubleshooting, set the NTP parameters to enable user events to correlate with the relevant diagnostic event log entries.
