How to: Setting the date and time on a ByteBlower Server

The ByteBlower is rarely the only instrument in the lab. Especially when comparing events on different tools, it's very useful having the same time on all. In this article we'll explain how to configure the time on your ByteBlower.|
ByteBower supports two approaches to setting time. The manual time configuration sets time right once. Over weeks, months or years the clock on the system will drift away the real time. The automatic time synchronization takes a bit more work, but avoids this drift.
For a single system we recommend doing the manual time config. Once you have multiple ByteBlowers in your lab, we suggest using NTP or PTP for automatic time synchronization.
Manual Time Configuration
To configure the Time,date and timezone you can use our configurator tool installed on the system. Start this by typing byteblower-configurator in the console

Go to system configuration

If you want to change the time and date, select option 1
You can choose between NTP (Network Time Protocol ) PTP ( only on 2100 and 4100 ) or Manual.
