Error description

  • During client snapshot differential ("snapdiff") backups, the
    timestamp in the message that displays the base or differential
    snapshot name and time is shown in UTC rather than local time.
    This is merely a display issue with the message, and has no
    impact on
    backup and restore operations.
    Example of messages:
    IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
    Command Line Backup-Archive Client Interface

    hours (GMT)
    Successful incremental backup of
    '\\netapp1-client.example.com\petevol'
    n this example, notice that the client logs reflect the local
    time which is PST,
    but the base snapshot and diff snapshot message time stamps show
     PST+7 or GMT.
    The timezone displayed in the snapshot message will vary
    depending on the local
    timezone being used; the time displayed in the message will be
    the difference in
    hours between the timezone and GMT. For example,  If using EST,
    then the time stamp
    shown in the message would be EST+5. For CST, the message would
    CST+6
