DG - Preferences

The date, time and time zone configured on your UCx systems is used for several features:

  • The system time of UCx Digital Gateway is used for the date and time shown on the display of Nortel digital phones connected to the gateway system
  • The system time of UCx Digital Gateway is used for log files generated on the gateway system
  • The system time of UCx Server is used for the date and time shown on the display of Nortel IP phones
  • The system time of UCx Server is used for CDR records and call log entries
  • The system time of UCx Server is used for log files generated on the server system

If your UCx Digital Gateway is connected to the Internet, Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to keep the system time accurate. In that case, you have to configure just the correct time zone. If your system is not connected to the Internet, you should make sure that you set the date, time and time zone correctly.

To set the date, time and time zone, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the UCx Digital Gateway Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select Preferences
  3. From the left side column, select Date/Time
  4. Use the drop-down list boxes beside the New Date label to set the current date
  5. Use the drop-down list boxes beside the New Time label to set the current time
  6. Use the drop-down list box beside the New Time Zone label to set your time zone
  7. Press the Apply Changes button
