Environment

Issue



At NetBackup versions 6.5.6 , with implementation of code in ET1914420, the date/time format displayed in the Java Administrative console has changed from mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss to Mmm dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss AM or PM.

 Example:
Original format: mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss would be shown as 09/08/2010 04:00:19  
 
New format: The same date/time with the 6.5.6 release would be shown as Mmm dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss AM or PM or Sep 8, 2010 4:00:19 AM
 
The new date/time format was not one that is acceptible by all NetBackup Administrators.  A binary has been coded that will allow users to specify whether to use the old or new date/time format. 
 
Further customizations of date/time formats is not currently possible due to JRE limitations.

 


Cause



 

A Hotfix is posted as an attachment to this document.  After installing the fix, the instructions for implementing are below:

 

UNIX:

Place the nbjP.jar* file in the /usr/openv/java directory. 

*This file may or may not exist currently in the directory as it is only supplied by support when a Java fix is required.  If the file exists, a case should be opened with NetBackup Technical Support to review any defects for which the binary was given.

In the nbj.conf, place the following line:

USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=1 (or 0)

 

If set to USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=1 the new format will be shown.

               

If set to USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=0, the original format will be shown.

 

Windows:  

Place the nbjP.jar* file in the <install_path>\Java directory. 

*This file may or may not exist currently in the directory as it is only supplied by support when a Java fix is required.  If the file exists, a case should be opened with NetBackup Technical Support to review any defects for which the binary was given.

Edit the setconf.bat file adding the following lines: 

 

SET USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=1 (or 0)

SET USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT >> "%NBJDIR%"\nbjconf

 

 

This can be put above the last two lines in the file:

SET INSTALLED_RELEASE=##0000

SET BUILDNUMBER=########

 

If SET USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=1  is configured, the new format will be shown.

               

If SET USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=0 is configured, the original format will be shown.

 

 

Examples of each format:

With USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=0:

 

 

With USE_OS_DATETIME_FORMAT=1:
