Cisco TrafficDirector

TrafficDirector 5.1 and 5.2 for Solaris Not Y2K Compliant

Updated October 6, 1998

September 8, 1998

Products Affected

TrafficDirector 5.1 and 5.2

Problem Description

TrafficDirector's Trend Reporter in version 5.1 and 5.2 for Solaris stops working when crossing the year change into 2000.

We erroneously reported that both TrafficDirector 5.1 and 5.2 for Solaris was Y2K compliant. We recently discovered that both of these versions are not Y2K compliant. A bug has been filed and the problem is currently being worked on.


Customers who have TrafficDirector 5.1 and 5.2 for Solaris and wish to test Trend Reporter's ability to produce reports after the year 2000 will find it does not work.

The database and the daemons are still collecting data but the rollover daemons are not transferring the data from the snap files to the database for the reporting engine

Problem Symptoms

You will see an error message that reads "no data in database."


No workaround is available. A patch is being developed and will be posted to the external CCO web no later than Friday September 11, 1998.

To find the patch, refer to Cisco TrafficDirector Software Module Updates (SMUs) (registered customers only) .
