Setting the time on the Huawei SmartAX MA5600

On the test, I will configure the time on the Huawei SmartAX MA5683T.

First, look at the current time settings:

display time
display timezone
display time dst
display time time-stamp
display time-range
display ntp-service

We proceed to the configuration, specify the time zone:

time time-stamp utc
timezone GMT+ 02:00

Example of manually setting the time and date:

time 12:53:00
time 12:53:00 2019-03-20

We specify the server address for time synchronization and the interface through which to send requests (I use the meth interface for management):

ntp-service unicast-server source-interface meth 0

Time should be synchronized, check:

display ntp-service status
display ntp-service sessions
display ntp-service trace

You can customize the transition to summer/winter time (for example, April 1 and October 28):

time dst start 4-1 00:00:00 end 10-28 00:00:00 adjust 01:00
