EEM problem with "event timer absolute time"

I wanted to execute a EEM script at a certain time, 2015-05-04 03:00:00 GMT+2:00. So I used the "event timer absolute time" command.
But the switch executed the script immediately. Is there something wrong with the script? Is there another way to execute a few commands at a certain time like this?
event manager applet CHANGE_TO_RAPID-PVST_v2
event timer absolute time 1430701200
action 1.0 cli command "enable"
action 1.1 cli command "config t"
action 2.0 cli command "spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst"
action 2.1 cli command "end"
action 3.0 syslog msg "Changed to Rapid-PVST by EEM script CHANGE_TO_RAPID-PVST_v2"
Switch: WS-C3560X-24T-S
IOS: 15.0(2)SE4
EEM version 3.2
#show event manager history events
No. Job Id Proc Status Time of Event Event Type Name
2 2 Actv success Thu Apr30 09:25:02 2015 timer absolute applet: CHANGE_TO_RAPID-PVST_v2
I used this link to calcute the timer value.

I honestly have never seen anyone use this timer.   You'd be better off using cron and removing the applet when it's done.
That said, this does look like a bug.  Given the little use we've seen of this timer, it's likely a new one.  I recommend opening a TAC case so it can be tracked.

  • Face time fades out and then tries to reconnect on new ipad retina display on WiFi.  Iphone 4s has no problem with face time from exact same location and same contact.  WiFi signal strong on both devices.  What gives?

    Face time fades out and then retries to connect (new Ipad Retina Display) on WiFi. Iphone 4s has no problem with face time from same location and same contact.  What gives?

    Is the router to small?
    Not necessarily, if you are using Facetime all the data goes through your WiFi router, your cable/DSL modem, your ISP and the internet to Apple's Facetime servers and then, in reverse, down to the Facetime recipient. If your ISP connection is too slow or there is excessive traffic on the internet you can have Facetime problems.
    Most WiFi routers can handle this unless others in the house are also using WiFi at the same time. The problem may be your ISP connection or congestion on the internet, etc.

  • Problem with a time zone in Belarus, Minsk

    All Belarus users of Mac and iPhone/iPad have a problem with a time zone in Belarus, Minsk. If you set time in AUTO, then time going down for 1 hour from actual time. That is happened after Belarus didn't went for winter time this year. In this case on all Mac's and iPhones and iPad's didn't work at all Face Time, iMessage, iChat. Apple still not reacting for this problem.

    Same issue here... That is really annoying when such a good things like iCal sync just doesn't work.
    Also, in case if you trying fix it somehow... here is a lot of issues related to this one. e.g. if the time zone settings were set in manual order; we're get an authorization issue with applications like Twitter...

  • Hey Guys, problem with Flex Time.

    Hey Guys,
    i have a problem with Flex Time. I was searching for a way to copy my 1-Tackt Timplin Beat to make 12 out of it, but there were always "wholes" between the new inserted regions. So i found Flex Time, but then when i choosed a Region, pressed the Flex Time button, nothing happend, except that the Header became a little bit bigger, as if there would been added a few more options, but there came only more free space .
    Would be great if somebody could help me!:)

    I would suggest Option dragging the bottom right edge of the Region so it fits precicely to the grid, then copy.  This is a quick way to time stretch...

    I have a problem with face time as the mobile is sending messages to a no in UK which is 00447786205094 and this charges me a lot and I notice that it is sending this message to activate face time

    That's what happens when you buy an iPhone intended for a different market. If you want to avoid this, sell it and buy a phone intended for your market.

  • HT201250 Unexpected problem with Mac time machine!

    Hi every one!
    I'm having an unexpected problem with my time machine! the moment I hook up the back up drive my Mac crashes and the only thing I can do is to force restart. I'm not sure if the problem is with the back up disk or the Time Machine itself. I've successfully used the app since now and this just happens! I can neither access the disk in finder nor fix it by disk utility... would you please help me?
    PS. the disk is encrypted, I doubt that might be causing the problem?!    
    Thank you!

    Launch the Console application by entering the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Enter the name of the crashed process in the “Filter” text field. Post the messages from the time of the last crash, if any -- the text, please, not a screenshot.
    Then, still in the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash logs related to the process. Select the most recent one and post the contents -- again, not a screenshot. For privacy’s sake, I suggest you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)

  • Problem with a Timer (Java.util)

    Hello guys,
    I have a small problem with Java timer. The problem is I wanne do some task let's say after 5 seconds, so I created a timer and set its delay to 5000 milli seconds and run my program to see that the task is well performed but the program doesn't end. I tried the timer.cancel() method or tried to assign it to null.... but never works.
    So how do i make the program stop gracefully after the scheduled task finishes.
    My Code...
    int delay = 5000;  
              timer = new Timer();
              //timer.schedule(task, delay)
              final boolean flag =true;
              timer.schedule(new TimerTask() {
                   public void run() {
                        System.out.println("hello");       // the program is still waiting after executing this.... why?
              }, delay);
              // timer.cancel();     
              System.out.println("ccc"); // these two are printed gracefully before the scheduled task... that's good.
              System.out.println("ddd");So any idea on how to solve this problem... make the timer stop after executing the required task.
    Thanks in advance

    Have a read of the JavaDocs, someone went to great lengths to write these to save you headaches like this.
    Have a play around with this code un-commenting the cancel, runTimerInDifferentScope and garbage collection call to see how it behaves each time.
    import java.util.Timer;
    import java.util.TimerTask;
    public class TimerExample {
         public static void main(String[] args) {
              final Timer timer = new Timer();
              timer.schedule(new TimerTask() {
                   public void run() {
                        System.out.println("[A] After 1 second!");
              }, 1000);
         private static void runTimerInDifferentScope() {
              final Timer timer = new Timer();
              timer.schedule(new TimerTask() {
                   public void run() {
                        System.out.println(" After 1 second!");
                        //No need to cancel me, I will be garbage collected
              }, 1000);
    Forgot to mention that the call to System.gc() was necessary to clear the timer. This is not something you should depend on (the garbage collector) in your application. I used it in this example because it's likely it would never run with such a small program and plenty of heap space left. If in doubt then use timer.cancel() as with the first example.

  • Old problem with precision time counting and /usepmtimer solution.

    Hello, all!
    There was a problem in Windows XP and 2003 Server with using QueryPerformanceCouner() function. Sometimes it can cause problem with precision time measurements on CPUs which support powersaving modes by changing clock frequency. The simplest solution for that was /usepmtimer key in boot.ini file which forces the system to use another timer.
    I just want to know does this problem appear in Windoes 7? And how to solve it since there is no boot.ini file in Windows 7?
    Thanks a lot!
    P.S. This is a page with detailed description of the problem:

    Hi ,
    There is official documentation released on userpmtimer for windows 7 operating system.
    Also the KB article only refere to the OS which have performance problem.
    After reading the below article , i feel that this problem is taken care in windows 7 / windows 2008 ( though there is no formal written documentation )
    you can post in windows 7 dedicated forum, so that MVP / Microsoft Engineers and community members would suggest you with latest data if any.

  • My Time Machine says there is no backup disk available.  I've never had any problems with my time machine.  I'm not technologically savvy, so if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!

    My Time Machine says there is no backup disk available.  I've never had any problems with my time machine completing backups.  I was away from house with my laptop for about 9 days so I'm wondering if there is something I need to do now that I'm home to get it working again.  I'm not technologically savvy, so if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!

    You can lose your ability to backup through TM for any number of reasons, but the most common is what happens after a update. If your drive still works, your best approach is to read this:

  • Problems with first time setup

    Hi to all and please be kind to this new applee.  I am vary familar with Windows but not Apple.
    I am having problems with first time setup.  Choice wifi network ZAJ34 has full connectino bars but requires a password to connect with it.  Tried to use "Connect to iTunes" and plugged in the USB cable.  Windows7 ran ok and "MyComputer\Apple iPod" shows up in Explorer.  All I get to is the screen that shows the cable pointing to the music symbol.  I am new to Applie iPod so I am totally lost.  I have the Apple iPod touch 8GB Black (4th Generation) CURRENT MODEL.
    Operating System - iPod touch User Guide (For iOS 5.1 Software) downloaded, not sure.

    I find this,
    Before restoring:
    Verify that you are using the latest version of iTunes. [How?  I am not past selecting a network.]
    Back up your device. [Do not know how, again, I am not past selecting a network.]
    Transfer and sync content to your computer. [Hooked up the USB cable and nothing happens.]
    Restoring your iOS device
    Connect your device to your computer. [Hooked up the USB cable and nothing happens.]
    Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab, and click the Restore button. [iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices, is it in Control Panel.  I looked in Device Manager and so only drivers etc.

  • Problem with event handling

    Hello all,
    I have a problem with event handling. I have two buttons in my GUI application with the same name.They are instance variables of two different objects of the same class and are put together in the one GUI.And their actionlisteners are registered with the same GUI. How can I differentiate between these two buttons?
    To be more eloborate here is a basic definition of my classes
    class SystemPanel{
             SystemPanel(FTP ftp){ app = ftp};
             FTP app;
             private JButton b = new JButton("ChgDir");
    class FTP extends JFrame implements ActionListener{
               SystemPanel rem = new SystemPanel(this);
               SystemPanel loc = new SystemPanel(this);
           void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt){
               BOTH HAVE SAME ID AND getSouce() ?
               In this if was from rem or loc ?
    }  It would be really helpful if anyone could help me in this regard..
    Hari Vigensh

    Hi levi,
    I solved the problem ..using same concept but in a different way..
    One thing i wanted to make clear is that the two buttons are in the SAME CLASS and i am forming 2 different objects of the SAME class and then putting them in a GUI.THERE IS NO b and C. there is just two instances of b which belong to the SAME CLASS..
    So the code
    private JButton b = new JButton("ChgDir");
    b.setActionCommand ("1");
    wont work as both the instances would have the label "ChgDir" and have setActionCommand set to 1!!!!
    Actually I have an array of buttons..So I solved the prob by writting a function caled setActionCmdRemote that would just set the action commands of one object of the class differently is the code
    public void setActionCommandsRemote()
         for(int i = 0 ; i <cmdButtons.length ; i++)
    This just adds "rem" to the existing Actioncommand and i check it as folows in my actionperformed method
         if(button.getActionCommand().equals("DeleteRem") )          
          else if(button.getActionCommand().equals("Delete") )
                     deleteFileLocal();Anyway thanx a milion for your help..this was my first posting and I was glad to get a prompt reply!!!

  • Weird PPPoE problem with new Time Capsule

    OK, so this is a long and tedious saga, but I don't know what details are important and what are irrelevant.
    I had an old AirPort Extreme which was giving me problems. I could connect to the internet fine when I connected my MacBook directly to the DSL modem via the Ethernet cable, but when the same cable was plugged into my old AirPort it thought that there was no Ethernet cable connected to the WAN port. The AirPort was over five years old, so I figured that it was just past its time, and I kinda wanted a Time Capsule anyway for wireless backup, so I went to the Apple Store and bought one today.
    I just tried to set it up, and AirPort Utility is telling me, "This Apple wireless device is set up to connect to the Internet using PPPoE but no PPPoE server can be found. Make sure your Internet service provider requires that you use PPPoE, and make sure that the modem is turned on and connected to this Apple wireless device's WAN port and try again. If you still can't connect to the server, contact your service provider."
    Well, I did contact my ISP (AT&T Yahoo!), and they said that if I can connect directly via Ethernet, the problem has to be with the Time Capsule or its settings, so they can't help me. I've tried power cycling the DSL modem and Time Capsule, and I keep getting the same problem. Does anyone have a clue what might be going on? (I'll probably call AppleCare when they're open, but I thought someone here might be able to shed some light on the situation.)

    I had a similar problem (to name one) and couldn't resolve it... I packed it back up and am returning it tomorrow.
    All these people have all these solutions but none of them should have to do any of it! That is the biggest problem I have with the TC. They give you a small little guide to set everything up and it doesn't deal with any of this. With networks and computers as they are right now.... you should not have to do any of this at all. You should be able to plug it in, answer a few easy to answer questions like it does ask and then it should configure itself just as any other network device I have purchased in the last 2 years. Even my PS3 I bought last week did it by itself by only asking a few questions! (Same as my macbook... so you know they can do it)
    Now.. say you do get it all set up and it works great... hope you don't have kids that like to play their XBox 360 online because guess what.... it isn't compatible with the TC wireless!!! If you want to use your PS3.... you have to buy more stuff.
    No.... do yourself a favor... go buy the D-Link DIR-655 that has a USB storage link... hook it up and be in business in 10 minutes. You can also get a 1TB WD external hard drive for $209.00 and hook it up direct to your mac and use time machine and transfer files faster than a mule walking up hill.

  • EEM Applet Problem With: event syslog pattern ".*" priority 2

    I went to create a EEM applet that would be invoked whenever any syslog message of priority 0-2 was invoked. I figured  the following event statement would work
           event syslog pattern ".*" priority 2
    I never really used the priority optional argument before but thought I understood from the docs that messages at or numerically lower than the specified level are matched.
    Well it doesn't seem to work as documented.  Seems to me that only messages at the specified level are beng matched and not messages numerically lower than the specified level.
    Anyway I did what I wanted differently but wanted to post this in case this is a bug in the syslog ed.

    Actually, it's a problem with the documentation.  The priority option only matches the specified severity.  What you could do is adjust pattern to do this:
    event syslog pattern "*-[012]-"
