Resolution / Answer

If you enable the Date and Time parameter, Automatic date & time, then you will need to identify the server to be used to update the time. Some networks block the traffic from NTP requests, so the time will not update as expected. If the device looses power while unused, this may cause time to drift from the previously correct time.
