We changed our server from HPUX PA-risc 64-bit to HPUX 64-bit Itanium: B.11.31 U ia64
We have in both computers the following locale:
and we have this environment variable set: $ echo $NLS_LANG
Initially, we had the same problem in the PA-RISC system until we defined the NLS_LANG variable.
Now, in the Itanium system, the NLS_LANG variable doesn't help. The utf8 characters coming from the Oracle database that are displayed using sqlplus are represented with several occurrences of ctrl-Z. I verified that the special characters are loaded correctly in the database, and they display fine using SQL Developer.
I have to say also that at the same time we changed our server, we upgraded Oracle from version 10g to 11g (188.8.131.52).
Have you heard of this issue with Itanium servers?
Thank you for your help.
