About this task

For successful time management, do the following:

Procedure

  1. Verify that each non-supervisory engine/server on the Metasys network has the correct Site Director defined.
  2. Set the time synchronization method for the site.
  3. Set the default time zone of the Site object for each network engine that has Metasys software at Release 8.0 or later.
  4. Set the time zone and then set the date and time or select a site time server for the site.

    See the ADS/ADX as Site Director section.

    If you have a network engine as the Site Director, the time zone, date, and time are set in the engine's Site object. See the ADS/ADX as Site Director section. If you have non-Site Director ADS/ADX on the site, you must set the time zone for these servers.

    If you have an ADS/ADX as the Site Director, the time zone, date, and time are set in the Windows operating system of the computer where the ADS/ADX resides. See the ADS/ADX as Site Director section. If you have non-Site Director ADS/ADX devices on the site, you must set the time zone for these servers.

  5. For Multicast time synchronization only, configure the SNTP Multicast attributes for the site.
