About specifying the locale of the NetBackup installation
NetBackup applications can display a wide range of international date and time formats as determined by the locale of the installation. To help ensure consistency among the applications, NetBackup uses a single, configurable source to define the locale conventions.
The install_path\VERITAS\msg\LC.CONF file (on Windows) and the /usr/openv/msg/.conf file (on UNIX) contain information on the supported locales. These files define the date and the time formats for each supported locale. The .conf file and the LC.CONF file contain very specific instructions on how to add or modify the list of supported locales and formats.
The .conf file and the LC.CONF file are divided into two parts, the TL lines and the TM lines:
The third field of the TL lines defines the case-sensitive locales that the NetBackup applications support. The fourth and the fifth fields define the date and the time fields and associated separators for that supported locale.
Modify the existing formats to change the default output.
For example, the TL line for the C locale is the following:
TL 1 C :hh:mn:ss/mm/dd/yyyy
An alternate specification to the order of months, days, and years is as follows:
TL 1 C :hh:mn:ss -yyyy-mm-dd
TL 1 C :hh:mn:ss/dd/mm/yy
To add more TL lines, see the comments in the
.conffile is not accessible, the default locales (TL lines) are:
TL 1 C :hh:mn:ss /mm/dd/yyyy TL 2 ov :hh:mn:ss/mm/dd/yyyy
Note that C and ov are synonymous.
The TM lines define a mapping from unrecognized locales to those supported by NetBackup, as defined by the TL lines.
The third field of the TM lines defines the unrecognized locale. The fifth field defines the supported equivalent that is identified in the TL lines.
For example, use the following TM line to map the unrecognized locale French to the supported locale fr, the TM line is:
TM 6 french 2 fr
To map French to C
TM 6 french 1 C
To add more TM lines, see the specific instructions in the .conf file.
If the .conf file is not accessible, no default TM lines exist as the default locale is C (ov).
