CISCO Bridge 1300 series IOS command line question: Clock timezone command giving invalid input error
Posted on 2008-11-05
I'm troubleshooting some connectivity problems on two Cisco Wireless Bridges (1300 series) and am trying to get my logging set up in a useful way first. My first goal is to get the two bridges to display the same time in the logs, so that I can compare them easily.
After telnetting in, I reset the time using the set clock command to the same time, and that went fine.
I then tried to use the clock timezone command
clock timezone CST -6 to get the two bridges using the same time.
When I did that, I got, %Invalid input detected at marker, and the marker showed beneath the "t" in the word timezone.
I'm confused as to how to use this command, since I think I'm following the instructions from Cisco's help pretty explicitly.
Here's some background on how the time is set up on each bridge, in case anyone wants to comment on my larger goal of getting the times somewhat synced in the two logs. (I realize they could be getting the time from a definitive source, but i'm choosing to set the time manually for simplicity sake. )
Bridge 2's log (from the browser interface) was displaying the UTC time and was 6 hours off of local time ex: Nov 5 15:27:28.884 UTC. On the CLI, show clock returns 09:27:10.074 GMT Wed Nov 5 2008, which is the correct local time, though our timezone is CST.
Bridge 1's log (from the browser interface) was displaying correct local time with no timezone specified ex: Nov 5 09:21:09.416. On the CLI, show clock returns 09:21:41.194 UTC Wed Nov 5 2008.
