Description

in /etc/e-smith/events/actions/nethserver-base-initialize-db line 89 I read:
source_bash('/etc/sysconfig/clock', \%config);
but in centos 6.2 and later this file do not exist.. right ?

Again in this script: $config{'zone'} where is defined ?

History

#1 Updated by Filippo Carletti over 4 years ago

I checked a CentOS 6.6 I have on Digital Ocean and the file '/etc/sysconfig/clock' is there.
On a CentOS 7 I installed from cd the file is missing.

Have you installed your CentOS 6 from cd? Or is it a vps or something similar?

#2 Updated by Franco Carinato over 4 years ago

I've installed Centos 6.6 from proxmox templates (VM)

It seems that virtuozzo has a bug where clock is not present in the container and shoud be copied from the host.
Maybe proxmox has a similar problem.

I found this: clock (no clock setting is required/allowed in container) in https://openvz.org/Physical_to_container

I can't copy clock from the host (proxmox) is a debian based distribution..

Is possible to workaround the problem in nethserver installation ? Test if exists /etc/sysconfig/clock and bypass the problem ?

WONTFIX

  • This problem arise only on specific VPS installations.
  • The workaround could be ignore the error and set the timezone again from "Date and Time" page
  • It has been fixed on 7 (where /etc/sysconfig/clock does not exist).

Feel free to open again this bug if new informations are available.
