HP9000/K220 & HP9000/K200 Internal System Clocks

Our oganisation purchased the following machines from the local UAE market.

HP9000/K220 on 31st May 1997
HP9000/K200 on 3rd June 1996

Please advise if it is any way possible to change the Internal System Clocks in
advance of the Y2K switch. Then after testing set them back.

With thanks is advance.

Yes, use the "date" command.

The following command will set the date to Dec. 31, 1999 at 11:59 PM.

date 123123591999

I would recommend performing a full system backup before changing the date
forward, then after you've finished your testing, restore the system from the
backup to avoid any confusion with future dates stored on the system or in your
applications.

(BTW, isn't it a little late to start Y2K testing?)
