Any information that the Foundation 9.0 manages is now manipulated, stored and retrieved in a language-aware manner. The internationalization functionality of the foundation covers broad areas of logging, locale awareness, legacy character encoding and Unicode encoding, string externalization, and utilities and programming interfaces for application enablement of these same features.

In this release, the foundation has been internationalized and is functionally localized to American English. Localization to the other target languages, as dictated by the VMware globalization policy and customer requirements, will be undertaken at a future date.

The name of the log files in the IP Manager reflects these changes in foundation software. Log files have the following syntax: <name>_<locale>_<encoding>.log. For example, MYDOMAINMANAGER_en_US_UTF-8.log. The System Administration Guide provides complete information about locale and log files.
