(DP) Support Tip: Reporting Server 10.60 gives "Date format should be MM-DD-YYYY."
Micro Focus Data Protector 10.60 Cell Manager on Windows.
Micro Focus Data Protector 10.60 Reporting Server on Windows.
When running a "Session in Timeframe Reports" report,
the "/dp-reporting-gui/restws/reporting/list-of-sessions" report
and entering the data as follows
cellManagerName: <the Cell Manager's FQDN in lowercase>
from Date: 06-01-2020
to Date: 07-23-2020
There is an error
"message": "Date format should be MM-DD-YYYY."
This error is present even if though the documented date format, MM-DD-YYYY, has been correctly used.
Take out all leading zeros in the Date Format like as follows
from Date: 6-1-2020
to Date: 7-23-2020
then the command runs without the error.
This defect will be fixed in a future DP version.
The cellManagerName hostname should be in lowercase.
Thanks for the tip, it's really useful.
Just one thing, there is a forum for tips only, this forum is for questions. Maybe you can move this one there:
