How to Confirm the Current Time on a VRA

Viewed 274 times

Summary

An administrator might want to check/confirm the time on a VRA VM, especially after syncing with an NTP server.

Steps

To see the time on any VRA, follow the steps below:

  1. Connect to the VRA of choice. You can follow the article "How to Connect to a VRA via SSH" if you are unsure of those steps.

  2. When finally in the VRA's CLI, run one of the following commands to confirm the current time/date:

    1. date

      1. This command returns the day, month, date, and the time in hours, minutes, and seconds in the EST timezone, and the year.

      2. For example:

      3. Wed Feb 10 04:57:29 EST 2021

    2. date --utc

      1. ​​​​​​​This command returns the day, month, date, and the time in hours, minutes, and seconds in the UTC timezone, and the year.

      2. For example:

      3. Wed Feb 10 09:58:28 UTC 2021

Note: Please do not change the VRA VM time manually, this might cause issues with the VM that will affect the replication. Instead, kindly sync the VRA VM/the host the VM resides on with an NTP server if not done yet.
