I have a mixture of phones in my environment. Polycom Soundpoints and Cisco SPAs. I am running End Point Manager 126.96.36.199. My timezone is set to America/Los Angeles in Endpoint Advanced Settings. This is July, so daylight savings applies.
The Polycom phones are all displaying the correct time, but the settings, IMO, are incorrect. The settings in the generated Server_325.cfg look like this:
What I would expect would be that gmtOffset is set to -28800 (for -8 GMT), and daylight savings would be enabled. Thus, since it is PDT now, that equates to the -7GMT or -25200. EMP is getting the phones to display the correct time, but in an incorrect way. I would expect to have time display problems at the end of DST in the fall with these settings.
The Cisco SPA phones are all displaying a time 1 hour ahead of the proper time. The settings generated by EPM are:
Again, the EPM generates an incorrect time zone offset. It should be GMT-8:00, but this time, it enables daylight savings. So the result on the phones is a time 1hour ahead of the correct time.
I have tried other pacific time zones as well as and east coast time zone. I always get an incorrect offset that is 1 hour off. Why is EPM setting incorrect time zone offset data? If I could get the correct offset and enable DST for all phones, then my phones would show the correct times. Much thanks for anyone who can help me with this.
