Need to enable timesynchronisation on all the engineering and operator station, once time is synchronised all the clocks in network will follow time master. you can set controller or PC(eng or operator station) in network as time master.
Check in manual about timesynchornisation or community system 800xA experts will guide you with reference document or procedures. Also check this thread may help in solving your problem. @ http://www402.abbext.com/sync-problem-q21563.aspx
All 800xA workstations/Operator Stations will b synchronized through afw time service provide. Please check the Time Service provider under service structure. make sure afw time masters service providers are there, delete unnecessary service providers.
and please follow the Manual for Time sync for all the systems along with controller and domain controller.
You have to do Timesync in the system. If you use PPA time service then Please ensure all operator & Engineering station windows Time is disabled. All nodes in th system should follow the PPA afw Time service which should be configured in any of your connectivity sever. One more setting, pls delete all node in the Time service in service structure except your Time adapter nodes.
If you use windows time from domain controller, all windows time should be enabled. Ntp server should be configurd in your domain controller and NTP client should be enabled in all clients.
Please go thru the 800xA Network configuration manual for more details about various Time Synchronisation options for 800xA system -3BSE034463-510_en_System_800xA_5.1_Network_Configuration, Page 141, Section 7
