Time and time zone policy of the server BMC


The default time zone of iMana/iBMC is the GMT time zone. The time zone and time synchronization policy is as follows:
iMana and iBMC of rack servers synchronize time with the BIOS every minute but does not synchronize the time zone. Therefore, if the iMana/iBMC time is different from the OS time, the difference is caused by different time zone settings.
iMana/iBMC of blade servers (E9000 and E6000) synchronize time with the management module every hour. The management module supports NTP settings for time synchronization.
