Start Date/Time Option

Post by tdk » Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:12 am

Due to license limitation I need to set a date in template file. For example I have a license file between 01.01.2016 - 01.06.2016. I set date to 01.01.2016 in template file.
Can you add a date/time field in node add dialog for qemu?

I do not think QEMU support features, instead you can setup NTP server with old dated, and sync your node with that NTP.

I mentioned above that I do this with qemu parameters in template file. It is possible. But I don't want to edit template files. If you use license you will need this feature.

$p['qemu_options'] .= " -rtc base=2016-01-01 ";

Thanks for pointing that, may be i missed that point, later i looked QEMU document the feature can be implement, so you looking to be incorporate in GUI to set default date and time while booting, is this correct ?

Yes. I want to set start date and time for a node in GUI.

If you know how to edit api coding, then it is possible, If you looking EVE-NG to deploy this feature for now, not sure is this road map of EVE-NG.

there is another thread user edited the settings, same way you can also edit the time and date.

It will not be in EVE...

But, probably a custom Qemu field will appear ...

Have you read my message in that post?
Why is there a GUI if we are going to do these manually?
