Why the time in "Policy serial number" is different with policy changed time?

Created: 01 Nov 2012 | 3 comments

After we replaced/changed policy of one group, there will be an item in "Recent changes appear blow" window. And the new "Policy serial number" will be created accordingly.

My question is Why the time in "Policy serial number" is different with policy changed time?

Take the attached picture as example:

I updated the policy at time November 2, 2012 10:31:17 AM HKT, the event item in "Recent changes appear below:" window display proerply. But the time in Policy serial number is 11/02/2012 02:31:17.

As Swapnil said, the Policy Serial Number is always in GMT/UTC whereas the policy date is the local SEPM time (in this case CET).

Both times match, just one is in CET and the other UTC

The Policy date is update on CET time Central European time which is for SEPM

and the policy number is real time change which takes in to affect when you assign / create new policy for a group .

This is a normal behaviour and also depends on your DBA time and zone configured

I dont think there should be any issues on client machine for taking the policy ,unless the client does not get the policy .
