Catalogued Arcserve Tapes display the year 2084

I have Backup Exec 2010 R3 SP2 and have cataloged some old Arcserve SDLT tapes.

The catalog jobs complete but when a restore job is created

the sessions are show as being from the year 2084

I am able to restore txt files from the tapes ok.

I have cataloged the tapes using Arcserve version 15 and the years are shown correctly - 1999, 2001, 2002 etc.

This task has also been completed using BE 11d and the years are correctly shown.

Has anyone else run into this problem?

I would be grateful for any suggestions / help.

Many Thanks

I've had the same issue and actually lodged an Idea to get this corrected. For some reason, BE 2010 (all versions) did exactly this, but in my case, picked some random date in the past. Changing to the correct date range manually sorted this out. This was the case with BE backups/restores.

Saying that, I HAVE been able to restore ARCserve 11.5 data using BE 2010 R3...catalog took a long time, but it wasn't a hassle restoring date after changing the date range manually.
