Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An OCI instance has a different locale than the default, for example:

$ cat /etc/locale.conf

A Boot Volume backup or Boot Volume Clone of the instance's boot volume is performed and used to create a  new instance.

Upon creation and after logging in to the new instance, the contents of /etc/locale.conf have been replaced:

$ cat /etc/locale.conf

This change does not happen if the instance is restarted, or stopped and then started.
