RE: Unable to change locale to Japanese in IDS 9.3

Posted By:

Hi Sumanto,

You might want to look at this book,

For the purpose of this test,
set these to empty string, be sure they are not set)

look in $INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/ja_jp/ for a file called e01c.lco
if it is not there you might want to install the Japanese locales and the
utf8 conversion files from the ILS.
If you don't have a copy of the ILS temporally copy e01c.lco from the
directory $INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/en_us to $INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/ja_jp

bring up you server, (This need to be done after copying e01c.lco file, or
installing ILS)
set CLIENT_LOCALE en_us.utf8
run the following SQL statements

create database bob;
database sysmaster;
select * from sysdbslocale;
drop database bob;

This lists the locale of each database that you have created.
The row for bob will show the default locale for your server. (as
DB_LOCALE is not set when creating it)

set CLIENT_LOCALE en_us.utf8 (you might want to set this to ja_jp.sjis-s
as this would be how you
would normally set CLIENT_LOCALE on a
Japanese windows system)
set DB_LOCALE ja_jp.ujis
run the following SQL statements

create database bob;
database sysmaster;
select * from sysdbslocale where dbs_dbsname='bob';
drop database bob;

This should return
dbs_dbsname bob
dbs_collate ja_JP.57372

If the database you want to access/create is ja_jp.ujis
then DB_LOCLAE should be set to ja_jp.ujis
CLIENT_LOCALE should be compatible.

This requires the following files
$INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/en_us/0333.lco (always needed)
$INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/ja_jp/xxxx.lco (Where xxxx is determined by
$INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/ll_tt/xxxx.lco (Where xxxx and ll_tt is determined

If CLIENT_LOCALE = ja_jp.ujis then only these files are required
$INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/en_us/0333.lco (always needed)

To workout the file names for a locale "ja_jp.ujis" look-up ujis in the
file $INFORMIXDIR/gls/cm3/registry

If you copied the e01c.lco file remove it from the
$INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11/ja_jp directory.

Good Luck,

RE: Unable to change locale to Japanese in IDS 9.3 [1071]

Hi Gerry,

I did the steps as mentioned by you, but I am still not able get it
working. Other than that, I also played around with the DBLANG and
SERVER_LOCALE, but I am still not able to get it working. I also tried to
work around with the registry settings for these variables for the server

I am either not able to start the service for the server instances, or
while accessing the database via dbaccess it gives the -23101 error.

Where am I going wrong?

I have already consulted the IDS GLS guide, but I can't make any headway.

My environment is Win2k with Japanese localization with Japanese locales
installed for IDS via ILS 3.30.

Thanks for the help !!

Hi Sumanto,

I am assuming that you are getting "23101: Unable to load locale
categories." when trying to connect to a database if not try this anyway
and respond with the error you are getting/when you are getting it.

To change the default locale of the database, set DB_LOCALE to
ja_jp.sjis-s and bring up the server.

To create a Japanese database set DB_LOCALE ja_jp.sjis-s CLIENT_LOCALE
ja_jp.sjis-s, and create the database.

NOTE: if you create a database with DB_LOCALE=ja_jp.sjis-s then you need
to have DB_LOCALE set to ja_jp.sjis-s to connect to that database.

FYI : to add Japanese localized files to the INFORMIXDIR/msg/ja_jp dir and
to add the utf8 Japanese locale use the international language supplement
(ILS 3.20 or later)

Unable to change locale to Japanese in IDS 9.3 [1071]


I am using IDS 9.3 and I need to work with Japanese locale in addition to
the English locale which is default.

When I installed IDS, the locale was English, and in the folder
$INFORMIXDIR/msg folder I see only the folder "en_us". There is a "ja_jp"
folder under $INFORMIXDIR/gls/lc11.

I need to insert Japanese characters into char fields. What are the
that I need to do for the environment?

I tried by setting the default locale of my machine to Japanese and also
setting the locale variables, but the dbaccess connection to the database
still not working. ]

The client and server are on the same machine and I am using Windows 2k.

I am in a fix as to how to proceed.

Thanks for any help in advance.
