Error description

  • When processing license usage data from the IBM Rational License
    Key Server (RLKS) Administration and Reporting Tool (ART) agent.
    The RLKS ART will throw a DateFormat.ParseException error when
    the date from the agent (which is sent in M/dd/yy format) cannot
    be parsed into the current date format.
    
    Example exception trace for a ART host with a YYYY/MM/DD date
    locale:

    In this case, "31" does not fit into the current calendar as
    month, causing this failure.
    

Local fix

  • Setting the OS date format to M/D/yy will allow the data to
    import successfully.
