Symptoms

On certain Sun Fire[TM] systems, a System Controller (SC) running ScApp versions 5.18.X, 5.19.X or 5.20.X. with extended uptime may experience an abrupt clock change.

The changes have been seen where the clock jumps forward to 828 days, or where the clock becomes unstable upon reaching 828 days. The forward jump has been seen jumping 60 days forward to 828 days. This clock change can affect the domain time, database applications, customer data, or any other clock related operations.
