Time is different on ZD and ZF

New Contributor II
The time is not in sync between my ZD and ZF's. The ZD shows the correct time. All of the ZF's display the wrong time and cause problems with timed WLAN availability.
ZF and ZD are all on same subnet and can communicate.
All ZF show as Connected.
All ZF are the same model.
All ZF have been restarted.
The ZD has been restarted.
The other ZF are,, etc.
The following settings are listed on the ZD and ZF.

ZD 1106
Version build 3
Your current system time is 26 February 2014 1:54:34 PM NZDT
Use NTP Server: YES
NTP Server:
Select time zone for your location: (GMT + 12:00) Auckland, Wellington

ZF 7962
Ruckus ZoneDirector IP Address:
Current Time (GMT): Wed Feb 26 00:54:40 2014

How do I get the time in sync?

Hi Lain - is your ZD in a different timezone than your AP's by any chance? We've got a feature request in to handle that scenario but it's not yet resolved.

firstly try to upgrade the firmware to latest version 9.6.2

there is some limitations in wlan scheduling with version 9.3.2. see release notes :

Hi Keith,

How would I find out if the AP's and ZD are in a different time zone?
I thought that the AP's picked up their time settings from the ZD.

I meant physically in a different TZ. But if that's not the case, I think you're hitting a bug (which is also not in the current release notes - we fumbled) where daylight savings offsets aren't being passed to the AP properly (AP's always operate in GMT so the Timer instructions coming from the ZD need to have the offset applied before being passed to the AP - we are failing to do that)

The only workaround at this point would be to manually adjust your WLAN availability timers. You would need to do this adjustment each time NZ DST changes
