I have a Centos 7 server running in a cloud-server provider (ProfitBricks).
I need to setup a demo system but is really hard to create daily fake data. My idea is to configure this server with an old date ("2016-01-01" as an example).
First problem each time I restart the server the date is updated even though there is no NTP client installed.
Second one, the most important. After I manually change the date using:
$ timedatectl set-time "2016-01-01 12:00:00"
After some minutes I'm not able to see the server (ssh or http). I have restarted the
firewalld service and the
sshd service, both show status as running.
