    Hi,

    I found errors are logged in event log of one of DCs: NTDS (404) NTDSA:
    Locale ID 0x00000404 (Chinese (Taiwan) Chinese) is either invalid or not
    installed on this machine.

    But other DCs do have such errors. What does this message mean? Any advice?

    Many thanks,

    What is the EventID# and Source name?
    Do the other DCs have Chinese installed?

    Event ID is 604, source is NTDS ISAM, the other DCs do not have Chinese
    installed.

  4. Hello Pakeon,

    Can be that one of your users is using the Chinese keyboard settings.

    But it is a DC, I do think users can touch that computer. Also this error
    does not happen before.

  6. Hello Pakeon,

    But the user logs on to the domain and if he uses a different language on
    the client this event can happen.

    Best regards

    I apologize, same as the subject line.

    Following Meinolf's lead, on the client computer that may be using the
    Chinese language, in a command prompt run %logonserver% and it will tell you
    which server logged the userin. Is this the same DC reporting this error? I
    also imagine this would be the GC that was used during the logon process.

    Yes, it is the same DC reporting the error. Also there are some users running
    WinXP of Chinese version. So do I need to install the locale for Chinese in
    server?

    If they will be accessing it, it may be prudent to do so, especially if it
    is a GC.

    If this is the case that some of clients will also be running Japanese
    version XP, then I have to install the locale for Japanse on the GC as well?
