Installation and Getting Started Guide
Select the time zone by selecting the offset from Greenwich Mean Time that applies to your time zone. For
example, to set your device to California time, select GMT-08, which means Greenwich Mean Time minus
eight hours.
NOTE: You do not need to adjust for Daylight Savings Time. You enable or disable Daylight Savings Time
separately in the following step.
Select Disable or Enable next to Daylight Saving Time to enable or disable it.
Enter the month, day, and year in the Date fields. You must enter the year as four digits.
Enter the hour, minute, and seconds in the Time fields.
Select AM or PM.
Click Apply to save the changes to the device's running-config file.
Select the Save link at the bottom of the dialog. Select Yes when prompted to save the configuration change
to the startup-config file on the device's flash memory.

Configuring the Syslog Service

The procedures in this section describe how to perform the following Syslog configuration tasks:
Specify a SyslogD server. You can configure the HP device to use up to six SyslogD servers. (Use of a
SyslogD server is optional. The system can hold up to 100 Syslog messages in an internal buffer.)
Change the level of messages the system logs.
Change the number of messages the local Syslog buffer can hold.
Display the Syslog configuration.
Clear the local Syslog buffer.
Logging is enabled by default, with the following settings:
Messages of all severity levels (Emergencies – Debugging) are logged.
Up to 50 messages are retained in the local Syslog buffer.
No SyslogD server is specified.
Syslog Overview
The HP device's software can write syslog messages to provide information at the following severity levels:
The device writes the messages to a local buffer that can hold up to 100 messages. You also can specify the IP
address or host name of up to six SyslogD servers. When you specify a SyslogD server, the HP device writes the
messages both to the system log and to the SyslogD server.
Using a SyslogD server ensures that the messages remain available even after a system reload. The HP device's
local Syslog buffer is cleared during a system reload or reboot, but the Syslog messages sent to the SyslogD
server remain on the server.
