SMP is attempting to parse the date using the current Altiris Service account locale which is not en-US (invariant) while clients are sending the dates in their locale format.


Change the System locale to "en-US" on the SMP while logged using Altiris service account.

Control Panel -> Regional and Languages
Change format to "English (United States)"
