I’m having some issues in setting up my groov Epic to use an NTP server. When I set up the NTP server in groovManage, it only shows my correct local time if I set the time zone to Universal or GMT. We are in the Eastern time zone. If I set the time zone to Eastern, the hours end adjusting off of our correct local time. In addition, no matter what setting I use for the time zone, Ignition Edge shows the correct local time, but lists it as GMT+0:00. We have our Ignition Edge configured to sync the historical data to a “full” Ignition server. When the data posts, it posts 5 hours in the past since the server is acknowledging the time and offset from the Edge server. I believe there are two issues. First, there seems to be an issue with setting the time zone on the EPIC. Second, there seems to be an issue with passing the time zone information to Ignition Edge. I’m not sure if I should post the second issue to the Inductive forums or not, but I figured I’d post about both here first.
