800xA AC800M clock synchronisation
I have got 2 AC800M controllers in my Control Network and also 3 Connectivity Servers. I would like to set correctly time synchronisation between them. I would like to have CS as a clock master if it is possible.
Could you give me some hint or link to manual how to play with it?

Defaule time syncronization scheme is as below.
How ever if you need to feed the time back to the controller then disable the
time adaptor in Connectivity server and then define the CS as NTP sever for the master controller.However I recommend you to follow the
time scheme shown above since its easier to configure things this way.
In order to have better time accuracy, it is recommended to use controller as time master.
Before doing the synchronization settings, make sure that windows time service is disabled in all 800xA nodes and AC800M time adaptor must be installed on the connectivity servers so that it can synchronize with clock master controller.
In this configuration, all the controllers will get synched from clock master (i.e controller) whereas all 800xA nodes will get synched with Connectivity server through time service.
