Proxy RA GUI will not allow specification of the year 2011 and beyond for System->Time and Log Viewer
Affected products and versions
This affects all versions of the Proxy RA software
There is no way to select years from the drop down boxes for years beyond 2010. Here is an example of the drop down:
Resolved by using the workaround below.
1) Log on via an SSH connection to the RA machine as the admin user. This will require a tool such as the freely available Putty terminal emulator on Windows. Linux/Unix/Mac systems ship with SSH and it is normally available from the command line. The command on a Unix machine is ssh -ladmin <ip address of ProxyRA>. You will then be prompted for the admin password.
NOTE: The next few steps require some basic knowledge of Linux and the vi editor. If you are not comfortable with Linux and/or vi, then please see the one-liner command at the end of this section for an alternative to accomplish this task.
2) Change directories to /var/permeo/tomcat/webapps/mc/WEB-INF
The line it finds will look like this: #foreach($_year in [2004..2010]
5) Modify the end-value for the ‘year’ which is currently ‘2010’. You do this by positioning the cursor on the the number 1 in 2010 and using the x key to delete both the 1 and the 0 in 2010. Next use the i key to go into insert mode and type the number 99. Now your line should look like the following: #foreach($_year in [2004..2099]
An alternative to steps 2 -6 above is to use the following command line: (be sure to either cut and paste or include all punctuation as seen in the command).
sed -i 's/\[2004..2010\]/\[2004..2099\]/' /var/permeo/tomcat/webapps/mc/WEB-INF/VM_global_library.vm
You will still need to either restart the RA or restart the Tomcat server as described in step 7.
NOTE: It is advisable to perform the fix during ‘Maintenance time window’.
Please see the Workaround section above.
