About this task
For time synchronization to work properly, all engines and servers on a site must have the correct name for the Site Director in the Local Site Director attribute. If an engine or server has the wrong Site Director specified, time synchronization on your Metasys site does not work properly. Complete the following steps:
- Log on the engine or server.
- Drag and drop the engine or server object to the Display frame.
- Select Advanced.
Scroll to the Site section and verify that the Local Site
Director attribute contains the correct device, as
shown in Figure 1. In this
example, the Site Director is a network engine (SNE11000-gr1).
Note: 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, SNE11000-gr1 is not the same as sne11000-gr1).Figure 1. Site Director Field
- If the Site Director field contains the wrong device or is empty, click Edit. Edit the Site Director entry and click Save.
