Time is vital in problem analysis. For this reason on LPAR level in the HMC you are able to check the box for "Enable Time Reference". According to the helptext: "Select this option to synchronize the time-of-day clocks for the source and destination Virtual I/O Server logical partition. " this will only work if you do this for a VIOS LPAR. On systems without VIOS LPARs you are able to check the box but it does not work. Being able to use IBM i for Time Reference is without VIOS LPARs the only option to get your time right on the POWER firmware level.
