Setting and verifying system time after replacing the controller

You should check the time and date on the replacement controller module against the healthy controller module in an HA pair, or against a reliable time server in a stand-alone configuration. If the time and date do not match, you must reset them on the replacement controller module to prevent possible outages on clients due to time differences.

About this task

It is important that you apply the commands in the steps on the correct systems:


  1. In admin privilege on the replacement node, check the system time on the nodes: cluster date show
    The date and time are displayed for all nodes in the cluster.
  2. If necessary, set the time on the replacement node to match the healthy node: cluster date modify -dateandtime "target_date_and_time"
  3. Check the date and time from the replacement node: cluster date show
  4. Exit admin privilege.
