Anyone of you expert guys have seen this error message before?

I've got this after trying to insert a trial license. Machine's date is OK, not sure about timezone configuration, Splunk's timezone is OK too...and, any clue? Any hint? Any Help? Thank you...

I gave the date of yesterday. it's OK now BTW, we checked that the timezone was America/Los_Angeles and Splunk was in America/Sao_Paulo. With a dpkg-reconfigure tzdata command we reconfigured the OS and after that, the license was inserted and it's working properly now. I would like to thank the attention of the community and mainly, the Tk-421 Splunk's Engineering team for the help on this matter, "you're the guys". Cheers!

Never seen that one before.
Open the license file with a text editor, get the ; it is an epoch time. Drop the epoch time into an epoch timestamp converter: http://www.epochconverter.com/

I am trying to check if there is a problem with machine's timezone configuration. Perhaps the problem lives there on this configuration...I will have more information on today's afternoon when I will be in touch with customer. Thanks a lot and I will keep you guys posted. Cheers!
