absolute: Specifies the absolute time mode. In this mode, each time point during a key's lifetime is the UTC time and is not affected by the system's time zone or daylight saving time.

Usage guidelines

You must specify the time mode when you create a keychain. You cannot change the time mode for an existing keychain.

The time mode is not required when you enter the view of an existing keychain.


# Create keychain abc, specify the absolute time mode for it, and enter keychain view.

<Sysname> system-view
[Sysname] keychain abc mode absolute
