hsm time sync

Synchronize the current HSM time with the current host time, and the difference between the two, in a block called "System Times".

Automatic HSM time synchronization depends on HSM policy 57 being set, and requires the HSM and Host clocks being no more than 3 seconds out-of-sync in the first 24 hours since the clock was last updated. ( For every 24 hours beyond the first 24, the HSM allows for 0.328 seconds.) If the difference is greater, you can use this command to 'manually' synchronize the two, after which daily automatic synchronization can carry on.

NOTE   The hsm time commands are available for HSMs with Luna HSM Firmware 7.8.0 and newer.

The System Times block is also part of the hsm show command output (LunaSH command for Luna Network HSM 7) hsm showinfo and partition showinfo LunaCM commands for all PPSO firmware versions (6.22.0 and newer).
