Configuring Time Zone Settings

Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV performs all data protection and disaster recovery operations according to the time zone set on the AHV Backup Proxy.

Since the AHV Backup Proxy is deployed on VM in Nutanix AHV cluster, the time zone is set to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by default. However, you can change the time zone if required. For example, you may want the time on the backup appliance to match the time on the workstation from which you access AHV Backup Proxy.


If you change the time zone, AHV Backup Proxy does not recalculate the starting time of scheduled jobs.

To edit time zone settings, do the following:

  1. At the main panel of the web console, click the settings icon and select Appliance Settings.
  2. At the Time zone tab, click Settings.

Configuring Time Zone Settings 

  1. In the Select the time zone list, choose the time zone of your region.

  1. [For NTP mode] Specify required NTP servers in the NTP Servers text field.
  2. Click OK to save the changes.
