You can specify the locale of any program, such as a client, Broker, server, utility by using the SM_LOCALE environment variable. For all such programs, the initialization logic validates the specified value, and ensures that all internationalization features can use it predictably.

The locale can also be specified for Java applications. Use the Java property com.vmware.cmp.dmt.locale on the startup of the Java Virtual Machine or on the command line of any program that supports the -java command operand.
