    Changing ESSLANG in 7X

    3004
      One of my administrators recently upgraded a server from 6.5.6 to 7.1.2. When he upgraded, he selected the wrong language: English_UnitedStates.Latin1@Binary. Our other 6.5.6 servers are set to use English_UnitedStates.MS1252@Binary as the ESSLANG. Because of the language differences, we aren't able to use any of the migration tools or even save the outline from one 7X server to another.<BR><BR>I know that ESSLANG is an environment variable and even tried to change that. However, when I tried to login to the existing databases, I was no longer able to connect and had to restore the variable. Is there any way to change the language without reinstalling Essbase?<BR><BR>Thanks in advance.

            Hi Didopiff,<BR>I've tried looking for the notes that I took but haven't been able to find them. I know that I reinstalled a couple of servers, but I think that the ultimate solution was that I simply changed the language in the essbase.cfg file. Hope that helps!

              <p>Thanks for the quick response,</p><p>I' playing with the dev server now and I'll upgrade from 6.5.7to 7.1.3.</p><p>I'm not sure if you can change that in the config file(ESSBASE.CFG), but it's possible I just didn't see any help in thedocumentation and the Essbase.cfg help. if youhave done it beforeand it worked please let me know how you did it, in case this issuearaises and we don't want to reinstall, and it's important if youdo a lot of migration.</p><p> </p><p>thanks</p>
