Localization Support

Instructions for localization:

The SPI installers obtain the HPOM for UNIX locale from the ctrl.env namespace before proceeding with the Microsoft Active Directory SPI installation. Verify if the namespace is set using the following command:
# /opt/OV/bin/ovconfget ctrl.env LANG

If the ctrl.env namespace is not set by the HPOM, run the following command on the HPOM Server before starting the Microsoft Active Directory SPI installation:
# ovconfchg -ns ctrl.env -set LANG <HPOM locale>,
where <HPOM locale> can be C, ja_JP, ko_KR, or zh_CN.

Example: ovconfchg -ns ctrl.env -set LANG ja_JP
Depending on the <HPOM locale> value, the LANG variable in the ctrl.env namespace will be set to C.utf8, ja_JP.utf8, ko_KR.utf8, or zh_CN.utf8.
