This section describes how to enable Japanese language support in the Address Manager user interface. Once enabled, the Address Manager user interface will always be in Japanese, but you can revert it back to English at anytime from the login page.

Japanese characters cannot be used in the following deployment objects:

  • DNS

    Views, Zones, Deployment options with text Fields, Resource Records, Kerberos Realms, Server host names, TSIGs, ACLs, Response Policy names, Policy items

  • DHCP

    Deployment options, including options with Text Fields, Raw Options, Vendor Options, Match Class names, Custom options; MAC Pool names, Third-party zone names used in DHCP Zone Groups, Tag names used in Shared Networks

  • TFTP

    Folder/file names

These deployment objects only support ASCII characters and must all be in English (US) even if Japanese is enabled as the system language.
