The following steps describe how to get the sync time source using the Time Synchronization service.
1. Retrieve the instance of AMT_TimeSynchronizationService, where “the “Name” key equals “Intel(r) AMT Time Synchronization Service”.
2. Examine the AMT_TimeSynchronizationService.TimeSource property to check the time source:
• BIOS_RTC – this is the default value when the system first boots and initializes the time from BIOS_RTC before there is any SW running on the platform. In this case, it is not known whether the time is local or UTC.
• CONFIGURED – in this case the FW time is set to UTC by UNS or ACU or SCS or other configuration SW.
