Any clues ??




Hey Laurence, it looks like this question somehow got posted twice so I deleted the second post.

start date is invalid, it should be YYMMDDHHMMSSZ or YYYYMMDDHHMMSSZ


Laurence, Could you please verify ?

Hey Laurence,


It seems that you encountered https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=755680 (which will be fixed in the GA).


Due to this bug, rhevm-setup passes wrong date to the certificate installation script (1111221446080000 instead of 111122144608+0000) in case the GMT offset is zero. The best workaround would be to change the timezone before executing rhevm-setup.




Thanks for the feedback, ill adjust and try again,


Thanks again




Changed timezone to UTC and still same issue,




Change the time zone to something that is not UTC or GMT + 0 (Nor GMT + 13)


Lets say any GMT + 1 location




Then you should be able to revert back. The problem is supposed to be just during installation.


That worked a treat Simon, Thanks very much , i can move onward now with my trialling


All the best

Glad to hear it :)
