Time Synchronization of connectivity servers to controller
I am using AC800m Controller with ABB800xA V 5.1.
I have an external GPS Clock & Controller reading time from External Clock. How I can Synchronize ABB 800xA redundant connectiivty servers to CPU clock?
Any setting to be done in workstation clock to be done to disable time change from any Server?

In Connectivity Server Nodes - You should disable the windows time service and configure afwime service (in service strucure).
In all other 800xA nodes (Servers and Clients) - Disable the windows time service
In Domain Controller - configure the Controller IP ( the one which is syncing up with GPS Clock) as NTP Server.
Time syncronozation can be achieved in a number of ways and its imperative to understand the schema before implementation.I suggest you to go through the manual
3BSE034463-510 E-System 800xA Network Configuration , section 7 onwards which describes in details the configuration which will fulfil your requirement
servers as in the case with Local Time Source. It is possible to use only a few
controllers as SNTP clients and let the others be CNCP slaves.
Configure 2 controllers as CCNP master and SNTP client with the ip address of the GPS device.
Also configure all your servers as SNTP client for your GPS device, follow the microsoft technet procedure to set SNTP
For detailed procedure refer 3BSE034463-510 E-System 800xA Network Configuration.
