[lammps-users] random initial velocity generation

Dear Lammps users,
I am trying to do NVT simulations of glucose in zeolite.
Is there a way to generate initial velocities in lammps by taking seed as the current date and time ?
I will be thankful if anyone could help me on this …

The velocity command initializes velocities using an
integer seed you provide. This form of seed is for portability
and reproducibility. If you want to derive an integer seed
from the date/time, you could write a script to do that yourself.
