A note about linux locales ,check_nt and localized windows performance counters
If you've trouble getting the return value of a localized windows performance counter from a linux machine with check_nt, try changing the default locale. For example on a debian "etch" machine you would issue the following commands:
- run "dpkg-reconfigure locales" ,choose the locales you want to create and set a non UTF-8 version as the default locale ( for example de_DE@euro for a german locale with euro support )
- run "/etc/init.d/console-screen.sh restart"
- logout and login
