Suggestions

  • Boot an already installed system change the time to few minutes before Y2K38 time, observe
  • Install a system with few minutes before Y2K38 time, and observe (so the installation lands exactly during the moment)
  • Install a system with few minutes after Y2K38 time, and observe (so the installation lands exactly during the moment)
  • Boot an already installed system change the time to few minutes after Y2K38 time, and observe
  • Setup a multi-machine job, where the one that changes the new time is the NTP server.

Have you thought about setting up cron jobs for a time after Y2K38?

Maybe blog of Thorsten Kukuk provides some more ideas for testing:
