here is the script where should set the time into the acpi alarm.
[root at server ~]# cat /usr/bin/mythsettime
echo TEST > /tmp/mythtest # JUST to check that script is processed
echo $1 > /tmp/mythtime1 # to see what will be echoed to /proc acpi
alarm ( thats the output "YYYY-DD-01:HH:01:SS" what is wrong )
echo $1 > /proc/acpi/alarm # write the Wakeup time to the alarm
[root at server ~]#
the Variables for the Backend.
SetWakeuptimeCommand: /usr/bin/mythsettime '$time'
for my understanding, the $time grabs the Time format "YYYY-DD-MM HH:MM-SS"
and the $1 grabs the formated Time and echo it to the alarm
