  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.0
  • Virtuozzo for Windows 3.5.1 SP1

Resolution

If you are going to use the Virtuozzo 64-bit version on your server and planning to create containers which are to run German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese or Traditional Chinese versions of Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition, you should complete a number of additional steps after you have successfully installed the English version of Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition. These steps include:

1. Installing the Multilingual User Interface pack (MUI) on the English version of Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition.

The MUI pack allows the user interface language of your English 64-bit version of Windows to be changed according to your preferences to one of the following languages: German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese or Traditional Chinese.

For detailed information on how you can install the Windows Server 2003 x64 MUI on your server and configure the system post setup, please visit the Microsoft web site under:
http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/reference/win2k/setup/default.mspx.

Note: MUI packs are add-ons to the English version of Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition and should not be installed on localized versions of Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition.

2. Adding the corresponding Virtuozzo operating system MUI template shipped with Virtuozzo to the Hardware Node.

For example, to install the French template, you should:
2.1. Run Virtuozzo installer in "download only" mode and download the French version of the operating system template;
2.2. Locate w2k3fr_x64.mui file and rename it to w2k3fr_x64.mui.exe;
2.3. Run the file on the Hardware Node, it extracts w2k3_fr.efd file into the same folder;
2.4. Copy the file to "vz\Templates\__cache" folder;
2.5. Deploy the template by using "vzpkgdeploy -i w2k3_fr" command on the node.
2.6. Now you can start creating containers based on "windows_2003_std_fr-5.2.3790" OS template.

Note: It is still possible to create containers based on English template. Moreover you can additionally deploy other MUI packs and corresponding OS templates on the same Hardware Node.
