Localization Support

The SPI installers obtain the HPOM for UNIX locale from the ctrl.env namespace before proceeding with the SPI installation. Verify if the namespace has been 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 SPI installation:
# ovconfchg -ns ctrl.env -set LANG <HPOM locale>. In this instance, <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.

HP Software Product Integration

The JBoss AS SPI can be integrated with HP Performance Manager (the product must be purchased separately) to get consolidated graphs. The graphs help you analyze trends in server usage, availability, and performance.
