  • Weird Date/Time issue

    I have 5 sites on ShoreTel running 7.5 12.12.6117. The sites are in Connecticut, Arizona, The UK, and France. My french site is having a weird issue that their phones have the correct date (Feb 14th) but the wrong day, (Friday) today is Thursday. I have a Stratum 2 server here with GPS that all my devices clock off of. All of my other sites are fine. Any thoughts?

    It's always the french that have to be different! J/K.

    1997, 2003, 2014 (the years with friday as the 14th)


    Odd.

      Yeah... this french site has been a pain from the start. A fractional E1... Dealing with France Telecom... you can imagine. At least they got my DID's right. That seems to be working.

      This time thing is a pain though. I'll call the support guys when they wake up but I wanted to see if anyone else had something similar happen to them.

        I would do a reboot of the whole system, from the server to the switches and then phones.

          Day

          Check your year on the clock of you shoretel server/time source. Many clock sync programs only do the date and time, not the year.

          is it possible the phones in the remote office are using a different time source than expected?

            They are all clocking off my Stratum 2 time server in my HQ site. I have the NTP and Time Server values specified in the DHCP scope as well. I have to upgrade to 12.13.xxxx so when I do that I will do the reset. I plan on upgrading tonight or tomorrow.

              BTW... My remote server that is managing the switches those phones are connected to is on my AD. So it is getting it's time from the NTP server as well.

                I've seen strange date handling in ShoreTel when the server's Regional and Language setting is not set to USA. You guys are about the only ones who use MM-DD-YYYY format and ShoreTel doesn't seem to like it the other way. The issues I've seen are mostly to do with schedules, never seen a day of the week issue before.

                  I imagine you have the time zone set properly for the site in Shoretel?

                    Back to basics eh Chris? Interesting approach while everyone else is debugging firmware on the atomic clock and investigating solar flare activity...

                      The time zone is correct... Just got off the phone with support and they verified as well. The only explanation that I have receid so far is... "That's France for ya!"

                      I logged on to the local vmail server and it's date/time (Year) settings are correct. The strange thing is that I have other international sites (UK, etc...) and it's not happening there. I guess it's true what they say... the French think they are a day ahead of the rest of us!

                          I wonder if the file that the phones download with the days of the week in it is correct? Language_5.txt for french I think. What version are you on?
