    I am trying to change the smaccess.log file time stamps from local to GMT time. 

    Ran XPSConfig and selecting SM and then choosing option 100 to change LogLocalTime

    But when selecting option C to change from TRUE to FALSE I am getting error and value is not changing.


    [12636/12872][Fri Jun 30 2017 16:03:06][CServer.cpp:3906][INFO][sm-Server-03550] Version: 12.52; Update: 01.02; Build: 766; CR: 02;

    I tried this on 

    [4136/4140][Thu Jun 15 2017 17:19:01][CServer.cpp:4069][INFO][sm-Server-03550] Version: 12.7; Update: 00.00; Build: 1194; CR: 00;


    getting same error


    Enter Option (C, or Q): c
    (WARN) : [sm-xobsm-00540] Invalid parameter: Value must be integer.
    Invalid Value

    PARAMETER MENU******************************************CA.SM::$LogLocalTime

    Type: Logical

    Description: Indicates whether the local timezone is to be used in the
    log file records, as opposed to GMT.

    Default Value: (not set)

    Please suggest if this is a bug or I am doing something incorrectly.

    Not sure what OS you are using but if Unix based, you can do this:


    stop the policy server

    cd {SM_HOME}/registry

    vi sm.registry

    search for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Netegrity\SiteMinder\CurrentVersion\LogConfig

    Look for entry LogLocalTime

    change 0x1 to 0x0


    start policy server.


    If Windows, this wouldn't apply.

    Thanks Samatnys, I am running WIndows 2008 OS, I tried to change the registry entry rebooted the server but still getting the logs in LocalTimestamp not in GMT format. So I think something is missing here

    Hi Richard,


    I have tested the same use in my lab. It is a defect in the product and have reported the same to engineering.
