ONTAP 9

Issue

  • Setting LastAccessDate in the future on the non-snaplock volume throws error starting ONTAP.10.1 (same error can be seen in ONTAP 9.11)
  • Before (ONTAP 9.9.1 and earlier) there is no error thrown but the date is set silently to January 19, 2038 3:14:07 AM
  • Bellows you can see examples of the behavior in ONTAP 9.9.1 and ONTAP 9.10.1:

==================================================================
ONTAP 9.9.1:
==================================================================
PS C:\Users\Administrator.DEMO> (Get-Item "Z:\test1.txt").LastAccessTime
