Dist Management - Sync Data automatically

Post by nirav.p » Tue Apr 16, 2019 2:48 pm

Hi ,
I am using WinCC OA V3.15 P010. In my distributed system, I have set up master system and two client systems. I want to auto synchronised selected data (e.g. alert classes, AES config, User & Permission) from Master system to other client systems. I have configured it via SysMgm>>Settings>>Dist Management. Master system has configured with required type of data to be syncronised and assigned new Control Manager for distSyncMan.ctl. Client System alaso configured with suitable handshake timeout etc.

There is only manual synchronisation option is provided. Moreover, if you start synchronisation manually from master system, you have to manualy accept the request from the Client system. How would I setup this process automatically with configurable time interval? are there any config entries for this?

Help file has not much info. (WinCC OA Help>>Special Functions>>Dist-Management)

Much appreciated your help.

Regards

The Dist Management feature does not support an automatic update in a defined interval.
At the moment the synchronization is made only on user action.

You can probably create an own (time triggered) function which writes the dp elements _DistSync_*.Command.StartSync with the same information as when it is done manually.

Thanks for your prompt response Leopold.

Will this auto sync feature be made available in the future or are available in V3.16?

As far as I know it is not planned to implement a cyclic synchronization for data in a distributed system.
