How to interpret SnapLock extended date range

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • SnapLock


Data ONTAP denotes time as a signed 32-bit integer that is interpreted as the number of seconds since 1 January 1970, 00 hours 00 minutes 00 seconds (GMT).
This interpretation imposes an upper limit of 03 hours 14 minutes 07 seconds on 19 January 2038 (GMT).
The extended date range mechanism remaps the dates in the range 2038 to 2071 to the date range 1970 to 2003.
