NTP server

Cause

NTP provides UTC, no information about time zones or daylight savings ( DST)  is sent. So if you don't set the correct time Zone and DT settings the time will be set to UTC time in the device.

Resolution

Log in to Xenta server

Go to  Configuration- Time- Regional Settings

Set correct information
