    Date and Time Fields won't Display from Universal Poller

      When using the Universal Poller to collect date and time fields from a Windows system (i.e. hrSystemDate OID 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.1.2.0) what appears is what I assume it to be the translation of binary characters (boxes and odd characters).  I looked in the translation functions and didn't see any date convertions.  Just to make things stranger, when I do a snmpget for the same OID from a UNIX client I get the date and time returned as a string.

      Does anyone know a way to retreive and display Date and Time fields from a Windows system with the Universal Poller?

          Can you post a screenshot of what is getting returned?

            Was there ever a response to your question?  I have run into the same issue.

            It looks like Orion UDP does not know how to handle SNMPV2-TC DateAndTime formated fields.

              Brandon any update from SWI on this?  I am seeing the same thing on net-snmp hosts and need to be able to alert on this value.

              Thanks!

                seems to be UNDP still does not have support for DataAndTime format. anyone know if there is any workaround to collect timestamp from windows machines using SAM or NPM.

                  Ran into this problem yesterday with SAM. Appears to still exist as of 02/16!
