Guidelines for creating SVMs

There are naming guidelines, and language and IPspace considerations that you should understand for creating an SVM successfully.

SVM naming guidelines

Language considerations

The default language setting is C.UTF-8 (POSIX.UTF-8), which is inherited by all of its volumes. You can specify a different language when creating the volume.

When you modify the language of the SVM, the default language setting is modified; the language setting of the existing volumes is not modified.

You should append .UTF-8 for the language encoding values. For example, for the en_US language, the recommended format is en_US.UTF-8.

Note: You cannot modify the language of an SVM with Infinite Volume later.

IPspace considerations

You must assign an IPspace to an SVM when creating the SVM. You cannot modify or remove the IPspace for the SVM later.
