Alarm Information
Handling Process

Root Cause
A user creates a VSM user on the VSM without customizing the validity end date. The VSM automatically sets the end date 2037-12-31, as shown in Figure 10-2. The VSM server then saves the end date as the UTC time. If the VSM user is created on the Western Hemisphere, its validity end date will be set to 2038-1-1, rather than 2037-12-31. The date 2038-1-1, however, exceeds the default end date of a VSM user. As a result, the VSM user fails to be created.
