Getting Data In

How do i get splunk to handle the year in timestamps dated before ~2006

Engager

No matter what format I attempt to force upon historical timestamps:

either

Feb 11, 2004 01:23:45

or

2004-02-11 01:23:45

splunk ignores years that fall before 2006 while the rest of the timestamp is preserved. The current year (2011) is substituted for years <= 2006.

Is this a configurable parameter/range I'm missing?

Yes, your dates are being restricted by the default MAX_DAYS_AGO setting in props.conf. The default is 2000 (days), which currently puts the limit at September of 2005.
