When looking at any alarm anywhere in Spectrum (ie. cli or the alarms view etc) the Last occurrence date/time shows epoch time. Here is an example: 

D Date Time PCauseId MHandle MName MTypeName Severity LastOccurDate&Time 
061569 10/15/2016 00:21:28 0x10f69 0x14f1af <modelname> SwCiscoIOS CRITICAL 12/31/1969 16:00:00 No No 
1964725 10/14/2016 09:45:06 0x676000b 0x1d1ffe <modelname> AP-Pingable CRITICAL 12/31/1969 16:00:00 No No 


This was due to a bug with the CA Spectrum 64 bit architecture.


This is tentatively scheduled to be fixed in the CA Spectrum 10.2.1 release.

This is resolved in PTF patch Spectrum_10.01.01.PTF_10.1.152 for 10.1.1.  The release notes show:


 This is a PTF (Program Temporary Fix) patch for the following issue: 


        Symptom: The Last Occurrence attribute is not set properly for alarms on Solaris


        Resolution: The Last Occurence attribute is now properly set on all platforms.

(DE247806, 00530748)


        NOTE: This solution only resolves the problem for new alarms, existing alarm data is not recoverable.


If you need the patch please open a case with CA Support.
