i just wanted to know what would be the tolerance (+ or - no. of seconds) for time synchronization between a PI Data Archive server and its Domain controller?
Windows computers that are members of a domain will normally synchronize clocks with the domain controller, using the Windows Time Service. This synchronization is provided specifically to support time-stamping of Kerberos authentication tickets. Per Microsoft, Windows Time is not considered a high-accuracy time synchronization system, and should not be relied on if very accurate time is required. Even if the accuracy of Windows Time is considered adequate, it requires that the domain controller itself be synchronized to a high accuracy time source

Data that is more than 10 minutes in the future of the PI Server clock time will not be archived (if you are using interface timestamps /TS on interface)
