    My users are currently getting the time setting through our Citrix Servers.

    This is set to change as we have an office in a different time zone so I will have to make sure that Citrix picks up the local device time and time zone.

    I have tried to get the syntax correct for my Time Zone (UK) and here is a copy of the sample syntax:-

    ;*************************************************
    ;* Time *
    ;**************************************************

    timeformat=”12-hour format” Dateformat=dd/mm/yyyy
    TimeZone=’Greenwich Mean Time’ ManualOverride=yes
    Daylight=yes Start=030507 End=100507
    TimeZoneName=GMT DayLightName=GMT

    ;****************************************************
    ;* Time Server *
    ;****************************************************
    TimeServer=vm-dc

    Whilst the Unit is picking up the correct time (apart from the offset) the Event logs are saying that the syntax/parameters are wrong for all the other entries above.

    Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

    I used the GUI configurator to generate the syntax.

    By the way the ThinOS firmware is 5.1.038

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I have not tested this but give it a try, I checked the windows registry in HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/TimeZones/GMT Standard Time.

    This is the value that passes to the sever at log in and tries to match to the server zone so the syntax has to match. The dlt name is the daylight name and it must match also exactly.

    Note the TimeServer and TimeZone lines below should each be on one continuous line:

    TimeZone=’Greenwich Mean Time’ ManualOverride=yes Daylight=yes Start=030507 End=100507 TimeZoneName=”GMT Standard Time” DayLightName=”GMT Daylight Time”

    TimeServer=vm-dc timeformat=”12-hour format” Dateformat=”dd/mm/yyyy”

    Hi Icebun, hi Thinkthin,

    this issue was already fixed in Confgen version 4.2.12. This was due to an undocumented change in the WTOS code.
    It is very import to exactly use the string Thinkthin already told you as every other combination will result in Casablanca timezone.

    Regards
    ConfGen

    Hi Guys,

    I have just rolled out some V10L units and have noticed that the time is not being displayed on the these devices.

    The system logs repeat on the syntax:- contacting NTP

    Weird as this works fine on the 1125SE units.

    Any advice?

    Hmm, I don’t have a V10L to test on at the moment. If your wnos.ini is the same as earlier in the post try changing the TimeServer=VM-DC to the actual IP address of that server – maybe a name resolution issue on the V10? (total guess here)

    Cheers,
    -TT

    HI TT,

    Forgot to mention that I did change the value over to the IP Address but it made no difference.

    The TimeZone and BST values have been picked up OK but the clock does not appear in the system tray.

    and the timesync on your Terminalserver is working fine? (opening the properties of the clock in the systemtray and select Internettime-sync)

    Yes,

    The 1125SE units are picking up the time OK, correctly displaying this in the system tray.

    I was able to replicate this here in my enviroment. You should contact Wyse Support and open a ticket. They should solve this. Who is your contact at Wyse?

    Hi Icebun,

    using the IP instead of the DNS name worked for me.

    Cheers

    Hi ConfGen, did that in the beginning. Did you put your IP address in ‘ ‘ marks?
    Doesn’t seem to work for me.

    I will open up a case with Wyse support and advise shortly.
