Reports have 1899 listed as Begin Time

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I created a custom report with BEXEC 2012. I used advanced fields and select "Begin Time" and "End Time" and other settings. Ran the report and the Begin/End times were 12/29/1899. 1899?  Report date is accurate. Any ideas? I certainly cannot submit this report as proof. I did test other reports, not all of course, and those tested revealed the correct dates.

Repair the BEDB as per the TN below...that's not supposed to happen unless you have the incorrect time/time zone configured on the server:

Repairing the DB did not fix the problem. Reports are still showing 1899. Other forums will have sent in logs for different reason and some show that the 1899 year appears in those logs but no one is pointing it out.

Time/zone are accurate and I have setup a NTP time server that I use on other systems without fail.

Attached is a simple report.

Thanks for your help

I think you should log a formal case with Symantec so that they can investigate this problem
