set date and time in VirtualBox

If you set date manually in your VirtualBox VM, datetime reset to the host date.

This behaviour is caused by VirtualBox Guest Additions, so you first need to stop that service :

sudo service vboxadd-service stop

You’ll then be able to change the date

date --set="8 Apr 2016 18:00:00"

So, what do you think ?
