I was looking for a way to force my VM to boot up with a specific date and time without going into the VM BIOS to change it every time I boot up.

I just need a VM for testing and evaluating certain software or platforms but I don’t like re-building it when the licenses expires.

Especially when trial software always expires in like 15 or 30 days ? 7 for a particular secure os and 15 for a particular secure platform. 🙂
