Time Server access

Why does SDM need a valid time and therefore access to a ntp time server?

  • Without a valid time all license checks will fail and SDM will stop working
  • Running a computer whithout correct time is in general a bad idea

How frequent does SDM need time server access?

  • We do recommend that SDM has continued access to a NTP time server
  • At least every 7 days a successful time sync should be possible

What if no ntp time server is accessible?

  • Then the operation of SDM is not guaranteed.
