2. Open the registry and navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Veeam\Veeam ONE Monitor\Service registry key.

3. Create a new entry with the following parameters or modify if exists:
Name: MaxTimeDiff
Value: the value that can cover the time difference in seconds

4. Start Veeam ONE Monitor and Veeam ONE Reporter services.
