VMware Integrated OpenStack supports internationalization (I18N) level 3. However, there are resources you specify that do not provide UTF-8 support. You can use only ASCII attribute names consisting of alphanumeric characters and underscores (_) for these resources.

VMware Integrated OpenStack Supports Unicode UTF-8

vCenter Server resources you specify using both the CLI and vSphere Web Client can be expressed with underscore (_), hyphen (-), blank spaces, and all letters and numbers from any language. For example, you can specify resources such as datastores labeled using non-English characters.

When using a Linux operating system, you should configure the system for use with UTF-8 encoding specific to your locale. For example, to use U.S. English, specify the following locale encoding: en_US.UTF-8. See your vendor's documentation for information on configuring UTF-8 encoding for your Linux environment.

  • VMware Integrated OpenStack manager name
