IT Analytics Cube SoftwareDelivery Execution Events Fails to process

When selecting SoftwareDelivery Execution Events to process fails with Error.

The datediff function resulted in an overflow. The number of dateparts separating two date/time instances is too large. Try to use datediff with a less precise datepart.


Invalid date data saved in the table Evt_AeX_SWD_Execution is causing the datediff function to exceed the max integer size. This size equates to over 64 years in seconds. This is usually caused by the End field containing a date that is invalid such as 01/01/1741 12:00:00.


The invalid date information in the Evt_AeX_SWD_Execution table needs to be fixed by either deleting the invalid row that contains the date or by updating the date value itself.

Execute the below query against each Symantec_CMDB database that is being referenced by IT Analytics.

Run search query:

SELECT MIN(Start) AS 'Oldest Start Date', MAX(Start) AS 'Newest Start Date',
      MIN([End]) AS 'Oldest End Date', MAX([END]) AS 'Newest End Date'
FROM Evt_AeX_SWD_Execution

Once you have found the date that is invalid either delete the row(s) or correct the date depending on your internal policies.
