About this task

For time synchronization to work properly, all engines/servers on a site must have the correct name for the Site Director in the Local Site Director attribute. If an engine/server has the incorrect device defined as Site Director, time synchronization may not work properly on your Metasys site.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the engine/server.
  2. Drag and drop the engine/server object to the Display frame.
  3. Select Advanced.
  4. Scroll to the Site section and verify that the Local Site Director attribute contains the correct device (Figure 1). In this example, the Site Director is a network engine (NxE-THREE).
    Notes:
    • The Local Site Director may be entered as an IP address or host name. If entered as a host name, the name is case-sensitive (for example, NxE-THREE is not the same as nxe-three ).

    • If the Site Director field contains the incorrect device or is empty, click Edit. Edit the Site Director entry and click Save.
  5. Go to Setting the time synchronization method.
