ServerProtect for Microsoft Windows/Novell Netware 5.8 cannot record a "ssaptn pattern out of date" message for pattern files that have version numbers above 997 even if the pattern file has been out-of-date for some time.
Hot fix 1273 uses the "last modify time" information of the pattern file instead of the internal timestamp information to resolve this issue.
Note: Hot fixes are downloadable code fixes for bugs or specific issues that occurred to specific customers. Hot fixes are meant to be interim solutions that will eventually be consolidated into a patch or service pack for your product.
Customers are advised to apply patches or service packs instead of individual hot fixes whenever possible.
