Configuring the system time 

Centralized security logging only makes sense if all devices have a synchronized time. NTP is already supported today. TimeServer provides all devices with the same time base. For each device you have to configure which time server it should use.

For information on how to set the system time, refer to the System time topic in the main PLCnext Info Center.
