Cause

This issue can occur if there is a custom Short DateTime format being used on the console server.

For example, say the system locale on the Operations console server is ENC and the default short DateTime format for ENC locale is dd/MM/yyyy. If this short DateTime format is changed from dd/MM/yyyy to a different format such as yyyy-MM-dd, the error above may occur.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, set the short DateTime format to the system locale's default value.

More Information

Custom DateTime formats are not supported with System Center Operations Manager reporting.
