Timezone mismatch across cluster members for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if the timezone setting is different.

Remediation Steps

Review the settings of each device in the cluster and ensure they are the same.

How does this work?

Parse the Gaia/IPSO configuration database in /config/active and retreive the currently configured time zone. It is also possible to list it using clish, but that generates a large amount of logs in /var/log/messages when done repeatedly.

Why is this important?

A correct time and time zone is very important for many reasons. An incorrectly configured time zone could mean that timestamps on logs are incorrect.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command.
