Alert Unexpected CM activation timestamp warning

Hi guys,

     After I test the Central Manager Failover procedure I'm viewing  this message in all devices

     Unexpected CM activation timestamp warning

     Alert: Current primary CM activation time stamp is older than this  node's CM time stamp. If a primary CM and a standby CM are deployed,  please  

     make sure their system clock are synchronized.

     What I did in Central Manager Failover procedure was

       01) shutdown the CM Primary (CM1) interface on the switch

       02) Verify that the WAAS devices didn't connected more with the CM Primary (CM1)

       03) Convert the CM Standby (CM2) to Primary

       04) Verify that all the devices could find the previous CM Standy, now the CM Primary (CM2)

       05) Convert the CM Standby (CM2) now to only CM Standby

       06) no shutdown in the CM Primary (CM1) Interface on the switch

       07) Verify that the WAAS devices were connected with the CM Primary (CM1)

     All works as expected , but now this message appears in all devices

     Does anyone has a suggestion ??

     My Best Regards,

     Andre Gustavo
