Error description

  • Product: Tivoli Network Manager
    Version: 3.8 and 3.9
    Component: itnm_reports_ja.properties
    
    Symptoms: The default ITNM reports contain a translation error
    for one of the values presented via the report period drop down.
    In the report period drop down, the Japanese text translates as
    "past 1 year"
    
    But the time period in the report is from the beginning of the
    current year.
    
    The expectation is that the report shows data from January 1st
    of the current year.  So the report is correct according to the
    expectated result.
    
    What is wrong is the value in the drop down list for the period.
    Instead of reading "past 1 year" it should read "year
    to date".  The meaning is different.  Past 1 year implies
    a full year worth of data going back in time from today's date.
    Year to date implies all data from the beginning of the current
    year.
    
    NOTE: The results of the default report is correct.  It is the
    translation for year to date in the list of options in the drop
    down that needs correcting.
    

Local fix

  • Make a backup of the file:
    
    ITNMM Version 3.8
    $TIPHOME/products/tcr/data/database/resource/ITNM/itnm/propertie
    s/itnm_reports_ja.properties
    
    ITNM Version 3.9
    $TIPHOME/../tipv2Components/TCRComponent/data/resource/ITNM39/it
    nm/properties/itnm_reports_ja.properties
    
    Modify the following lines in that file:
    YTD=\u904e\u53bb 1 \u5e74\u9593 --> YTD=\u5e74\u521d\u6765
    T=\u5f53\u65e5 --> T=\u4eca\u65e5
    Y=\u524d\u65e5 --> Y=\u6628\u65e5
    CM=\5f53\u6708 --> CM=\u4eca\u6708
