IME and IXE series cameras will not update time from an NTP server

Issue

IME and IXE series cameras will not update time from an NTP server if the time has been set manually in SSH mode

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management

Environment

IME and IXE maxwell series cameras when setting the time by SSH in the camera

Cause

The manual setting in the SSH mode causes the regular update to not work properly and when the WEB UI is used afterwards to set to an NTP server it reverts back to 1970

Resolution

Only set the NTP server in the WEB UI mode
