Error description

  • The Tivoli Common Reporting report "Tape Volume Capacity
    Analysis" returns with no data displayed while a verification
    from the DB2 warehouse database shows that data was collected
    for the indicated report.
    
    This is a known defect within the Tivoli Common Reporting
    scripts.
    Basically when a date field is something out side of the US time
    zones the value is incorrectly converted.
