Log into the device with Telnet or SSH. Enter privileged mode by typing enable and entering your enable password.
Enable DNS lookup
You need to make sure DNS lookups are enabled on your device so it can be synced to an NTP server. Run the following command. Replace
22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 with the DNS servers you’d like to use.
config system dns set primary 188.8.131.52 set secondary 184.108.40.206 set domain <local domain_str> end
Set the clock, time zone, and NTP server
The commands below set the time zone on your device.
config system global set timezone 12 set dst (enable | disable) end execute time <time_str> execute date <date_str> # <timezone 12> is the index number of the timezone in the FortiWeb appliance.
To view the list of valid time zones, and the associated index numbers, enter ? # dst (enable | disable) is a choice between enabling or disabling daylight
savings time clock adjustments. # <time_str> is the time for the time zone in which the FortiWeb appliance is
located according to a 24-hour clock. Which is formatted as, hh:mm:ss (00:00:00) # <date_str> is the date for the timezone in which the FortiWeb appliance is
located. Which is formatted as, yyyy-mm-dd (2019-01-01)
These next commands set the NTP synchronization server. We’re using GMT-5 (Eastern Time zone in North America) in this example. Update timezone 12 to match your time zone.
config system global set ntpsync enable set timezone 12 set ntpserver pool.ntp.org end
Confirm the NTP settings
To make sure the settings took effect, run the following command:
get system status
Synchronize with an NTP server
