NetStorage can be configured to use different languages and characters by changing the character set or code page on your server. The default character set for NetStorage is the same as the character set that root is configured to use. This character set is determined during the Virtual Office installation.
You can determine the character set that root is configured to use by entering locale charmap at the Linux server console. Character sets for different users are configured by setting the LC_* environment variables.
If the character set that root is configured to use is not the same as the one that NetStorage is configured to use, you must configure NetStorage to use a different character set. To do this, edit the /etc/opt/novell/xtier/xsrvd/envvars file and modify the XTIER_CODE_PAGE environment variable.
As a general rule, NetStorage should use the same code page as the servers hosting storage that NetStorage accesses.
You can determine which character sets are installed and available on your server by entering iconv --list at the server console.
