Date and time settings

Brocade switches maintain the current date and time inside a battery-backed real-time clock (RTC) circuit. Date and time are used for logging events. Switch operation does not depend on the date and time; a switch with incorrect date and time settings can function correctly. However, because the date and time are used for logging, error detection, and troubleshooting, you should set them correctly.
