[SRX] Security log messages not in sync with the NTP server after a change in time-zone



Article ID: KB23963 KB Last Updated: 30 Jun 2020Version: 4.0
This article describes the issue of security log messages not being in sync with the NTP server, after a change in the time zone.
Security log messages not being in sync with the NTP server, after a change in the time zone.

On SPC-based systems, when a time zone is configured on a device, it gets applied only to the RE and will not be pushed to the PFE. The data plane logs are generated in the PFE; rather than the routing engine. This is the reason behind the data plane logs not containing the updated timestamp.

Note: This does not apply to the control plane logs as these are generated in the routing engine itself.

A work-around is to restart the SPCs or to reboot the device.
