    Hi Jan,

    Assuming you are using Workstation WebStart, you would have to change the locale of the Enterprise Manager to be a locale that defaults to using 24-hour clock - this would affect all users so it would make sense to test first.

    In Introscope_Enterprise_Manager.lax find this line

    lax.command.line.args=$CMD_LINE_ARGUMENTS$ -consolelog -noExit -product com.wily.introscope.em.product -install ".\\product\\enterprisemanager" -configuration ".\\product\\enterprisemanager\\configuration"


    and add -nl followed by a locale code for a suitable user language


    I have this old link for locale codes in Java

    JDK 6 and JRE 6 Supported Locales


    You should set the value closest to your country, there was a past example of setting Spanish which would look like

    -nl ES


    So the complete thing would be:


    lax.command.line.args=$CMD_LINE_ARGUMENTS$ -consolelog -noExit -product com.wily.introscope.em.product -install ".\\product\\enterprisemanager" -configuration ".\\product\\enterprisemanager\\configuration" -nl ES


    From what I can tell, you can set use the lowercase value if it is unique, for example da for Danish, but if it is something where there are multiple versions of the language like Spanish, you use the uppercase code to denote the variant of the language, in this case 'Spanish from Spain'.


    If this is for an EM running as a Windows service you would set the values in EMService.conf like this:





    If you have a standalone Workstation installed, you should be able to force the locale just for your view by adding the locale setting to the lax.commandline.args in the Introscope_Workstation.lax


    There are only certain locales that are officially supported so this is just a suggestion of how you might get this to work.


    Many thanks,

    Hi David;

    Thank you for such a quick reply. Could you please tell how to change locale of Enterprise Manager ?

    We are running EM on Linux and using it for monitoring of several remote mostly SAP systems.

    Thank you in advance for any details.

    best regards

    If these are SAP RTV, you cannot make changes to them on your own. You need to open a note with SAP support.

    If these are SED servers, then you can make some adjustments, but you will need to notify SAP about them.


    You cannot legally connect SMD  or SED Agents to APM servers outside the landscape (as far as I know).

    Hello David;


    There are probably some differences between EM versions. We use EM 9.1.52 and adding -nl NL or -nl ES does not make a difference. I will try to play with Java locales. Thank you for the link to locale codes in Java.

    Best regards
