The project can be configured to start on both the primary and secondary computers when they power up.
Important: Make sure that the projects do not start at the same time if they are configured to start on both the primary and secondary computers when they power up. Failure to ensure this can result in both computers considering themselves the master.
To provide a mechanism for dealing with a Power On situation where both computers boot at the same time you can configure a parameter to delay the secondary computer's startup until the primary is complete.
To delay the secondary computer's startup until the primary is running:
Configure the following global parameter in the project.
Timeminutes is the amount of time it takes for the project to start on the primary computer plus an additional minute.
This value you empirically determine by measuring the startup time on the master.
Note: It is recommended that you use the Workbench to start redundant projects.
