6.1.4 Installation Fails on Non-English Character Set

If the operating system is a non-English character set or language, the Oracle VM Manager installer may display the following error:

Update default password failed.

Oracle VM Manager only supports the English language and character set.

You can check the log file at /tmp/ovmm-installer.selfextract_id/ovm-manager-3-install-date.log for more detailed information.

To workaround this issue, set the character set to en_US.UTF-8:

  1. Run the following command to check if the value of LANG is en_US.UTF-8:

    # env|grep LANG
  2. If the character set is not en_US.UTF-8, change it to en_US.UTF-8:

    # export LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
  3. Reinstall Oracle VM Manager.
