    Hi All,
    It would be nice to have an option for a Network Time Server (NTP) build in, so we don’t have to, twice a year, manually change the system time.
    In my setup there are a few time-enabled presets that has to be recalled. A good real-time time would be appreciated!

    I second this request. I currently have scheduling done by another system that is NTP sychronised and connects to AHM with GPI. If I want to move this scheduling to the AHM itself I’ll need it to be NTP sychronised.

    I would go further and say that an NTP client is *essential* for the AHM. Our AHM loses 5 seconds EVERY DAY. For a system with scheduling as a prominent feature we need much better timekeeping to be useful, especially when coordinating events with scheduled program content.

    Does the AHM have to have an internet connection?
    In the production environment we don’t want to have an internet connection from system-relevant devices.

    I don’t really like the different time either, even though the clock in our AHM is much more accurate. But it’s true: if you use time-controlled processes, then an accurate time is of course important.
    Is there another way to solve this?

    You can have an NTP server on your local network, that’s what we do. It’s doesn’t have to be on the internet.

    Ah, that’s good. Then our network technician can certainly implement it easily.
    If this option is available.
