PowerChute Business Edition fails to install on VMware vMA with error "System Locale is set to C. Please reset System Locale"

PowerChute Business Edition 10.x

VMware vMA  versions 6.0, 6.5

Profile set to the wrong locale.

Change the locale of the profile.

Open the profile file using the following command: sudo vi /etc/profile

Add one of the following to the end of the profile file:

export LC_ALL=en_US.utf8
export LANG=en_US.utf8
export LANGUAGE=en_US.utf8

export LC_ALL=zh_CN.utf8
export LANG=zh_CN.utf8
export LANGUAGE=zh_CN.utf8

export LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf8

export LANG=ja_JP.utf8
export LANGUAGE=ja_JP.utf8

Remove any lines in the profile file that contain “export LANG=C.utf8”.

Reboot the vMA

Confirm that the system locale has changed by entering the command: Locale

NOTE: If you are not familiar with using vi editor you can copy the file to a Windows system and edit the file with a text editor. Then copy the file back. Prior to coping the file you should make a copy of the file. The command is sudo cp /etc/profile /etc/profile.saved. Once saved you will need to change the file permissions to allow write access. The command is sudo chmod +w /etc/profile.
