I'd like to find out what date and time (and possibly time zone) a Symmetrix (DMX-4 and VMAX) is set to. I've checked Powerlink as well as the man pages for symcli, but nothing pops out.

You can see a timezone displayed using:

symcfg -sid XXXX -v list

I do not know if the timezone displayed is for the Symm or for the host the CLI is running on, however.

The time zone displayed is for the host the CLI is running on. I just tested this against an array using two different hosts in different time zones, and I got the time zones for the hosts. – Joel Feb 21 '11 at 20:12
