The date, time, and time zone in the Status Bar of the SMP user interface indicates the local date, time, and time zone for that device. The date, time, and time zone in the device object to which you are browsing are the same time; however, there may sometimes seem to be a discrepancy or delay between the two. This is normal operation.
For a network engine at Release 8.0 or later, the local time and date shown on the device object's focus window is based on the default time zone set for the device. If the engine is located in a different time zone than the Site Director, the current time and date shown for each differs.
In the Site Director, the time zone, date, and time in the device object of the device are set by you or by the designated site time server. In a non-Site Director network engine, the time zone, date, and time in the device object come from the Site Director. In a non-Site Director ADS/ADX, the time zone in the device object comes from your manual setting, but the date and time come from the Site Director. The device object then passes the time zone, date, and time along to the Status Bar for display. If the device is busy, it may take a few minutes for the time zone, date, and time to update correctly in the Status Bar.
