The correct answer is: b! The Change log! only one change log available per organization, so the timestamps are always in UTC!

That's a toughy.   I guessed wrong.

Yeah, that‘s a really good one. I missed too.

Hey Raf, 

 

I believe it's the Video Access Log due to it having the ability to be accessed by people outside of the dashboard and Meraki not being able to timestamp them due to a series of unknowns - hence always UTC. A person could be accessing them from any time zone via the share link.

I also really don't know. But if this would be a real exam I would approach it the following way:

 

Spoiler

- One of them (b) is organisation-based and a clear candidate for UTC.

- Two of them (a and c) are for events that are local to a network and the network has it's own timezone.

- One (d) is a log that is based on a Meraki network but he events can relate to any timezone because the devices are roaming, This would also be a candidate for UTC.

 

With (a) and (c) ruled out there it is 50:50 chance and my guess (based on what is more likely) would go to (b).

I think I saw UTC in some area.

 

Spoiler
b. Change log.

As far as I remember, I have to calculate device add/remove time to my local timezone.

That was an easy one , I'm always having to convert the change logs. 

 

If only we could get something like Cisco ( service timestamps log datetime localtime show-timezone )
