Set the compliance clock

Before you can create SmartLock compliance directories, you must set the compliance clock.

About this task

Setting the compliance clock configures the clock to the same time as the Isilon cluster system clock. Before you set the compliance clock, ensure that the system clock is set to the correct time. If the compliance clock later becomes unsynchronized with the system clock, the compliance clock will slowly correct itself to match the system clock. The compliance clock corrects itself at a rate of approximately one week per year.
