Foreign code page support

To configure ITOMweb for foreign code pages, you must configure the server to support foreign code page conversions to UTF-8. USA English sites do not need this option, the default code set is sufficient. Determine the correct name for the code page your site uses to encode sysouts captured by Output Manager. For example, if your site uses code page IBM®-424, make the following changes.

Adding foreign code page support when using the IBM HTTP Server (powered by Apache) V9R0

When using IBM HTTP Server (powered by Apache), you adjust your configuration values in the Output Manager ISPF interface:
  1. Navigate to the Policy Administration panel (ISPF A.PA).
  2. In the Subsystem field, enter the ITOMweb configuration value. This is the value that you specified in the ?ITOMWEB_CONFIG? variable above.
  3. In the Type field, type ITOMWeb.
  4. On the command line, type E and press Enter. The Policies panel is displayed.
  5. On the Policies panel, ensure that the following parameters are specified. If a parameter has not been specified, you can type ADD on the command line, press Enter, and select the parameter from a list. Alternatively, you can scroll to the bottom of the Policies panel, and type the parameter name in the Name column, and the value in the Value column.
    • LOCALE: Specify your local language environment. This value follows the standard internationalization locale naming conventions. For example, he_IL.IBM-424. This parameter is only required if your local language environment is not US English (En_US).

    • DEFAULT_ARCHIVE_CHARSET: This parameter is used to support foreign code page conversion to UTF-8. Specify the character set (charset) to assume for archive data sets if there is no other information in the archive data set or history DB that is more specific. USA English sites do not need this option, the default code set is sufficient. Set the argument to the code page for your local language environment, for example, IBM-424.
  6. Users must set the encoding of their browsers to UTF-8 to see the correct representation of native language characters in the archives and reports.
