How To: Setup regional settings (locale) on Unix for ArcMap Server and ArcReader

Summary

Regional Settings for ArcMap Services on Unix can be set by using the MainWin Control Panel (mwcontrol).

In ArcIMS 9.2, the setup of regional locale is automated based on the current locale.

The procedure outlined here is applicable when regional settings need to changed manually.

Procedure

Follow the steps below.

  1. Open a terminal on the machine where ArcMap server is installed.
  2. At the command prompt type:

    Code:
    cd $AIMSHOME/qs_scripts
    ./stop_arcims

  3. At the command prompt type:

    Code:
    source $AIMSHOME/../init_engine.csh
    mwcontrol

    This opens the MainWin Control Panel.
  4. Click the 'Regional Settings' icon to open the Regional Settings Properties dialog box.
  5. On the Regional Settings tab, select the required locale. This locale should match with the System Locale of the ArcIMS user.
    • Check the 'Set as System default Locale' option in the bottom of the dialog.
    • If required, specify the Number, Currency, Time and Date options in this dialog.
  6. Click OK to accept the settings and to close the Regional Settings Properties dialog window.
  7. Close the MainWin Control Panel.
  8. In the command prompt type:

    Code:
    mwadm stop

    This stops the MainWin Core Services.

    Code:
    mwadm start

    This starts the MainWin Core Services.
