French environment


Customer faced this issue on 2 different servers:

1. nw65sp6+bm39 migrated from 3.8
2. nw65sp7+bm39 brand new

On both the issue was seen.

Selecting access control rules and making a new rule was fine but when "apply
changes" was hit, a system error was seen ( in french). After that, selecting access control
rules again showed the message that this object was not migrated and fillattr
should be run. Running fillattr allowed to select access rules menu again but
when created a new rule, the same system error was shown. At this time, the
logger screen showed this error:

Get working config for ACL
Get Object
Creating the NBM ACL device
Device Created with name SERVER-BM
Creating the device configuration
attribute back up
Get the attribute components
reading strings
VCDNException::ErrorCode=Unable to read attribute
value,ResourceBundle=resources,MessageKey=Unable to read attribute


This issue is a localization one. After setting iManager language to English and configure browser to only accept English language, issue was gone.

It has been fixed in bm39sp2_ir1 patch
