Using the Russian language locale, unable to type upper case letters in the configuration wizard

Troubleshooting


Problem

If you run the configuration wizard (dsmicfgx) on the AIX  operating system in the Russian locale, the shift key does not work.  After you add any text to the text fields, you are unable to type upper case or special characters that require the shift key.  

Symptom

The shift key does not work in any of the text boxes. Upper case and special characters cannot be entered in the text boxes.  

Environment

System:  AIX
Locale:  Russian

Resolving The Problem

Before you run the configuration wizard, set the language locale. Use a different language locale other than Russian. For example, to use the English locale, issue this command:
export LANG=en_US  ./dsmicfgx
