There are several settings in the NSX Manager that can be edited to suit your environment. These settings can also be edited using the NSX CLI; however, we will learn to update these settings using the UI.
You can change the date and time settings as needed.
You need to perform the following steps:
- Log in to the NSX Manager virtual machine appliance.
- Click on
Manage appliance setting
- Next to
Time Settings, click
- Reboot the appliance to apply the changes.
Having a syslog server is recommended. Configuring NSX Manager with a remote syslog server enables you to collect, view, and save all log files to a central location. This enables you to store logs for compliance purposes; when you are using a tool such as VMware vRealize Log insight, it enables you to create alarms and use the built-in search engine to review logs.
