Alert Description in Different Language


I was running into the issue that my alert description was in my native language Dutch. Nice feature to have but I prefer the alert description to be in English.

I Took the following steps to resolve the issue

  1. Go to the server that is generated the Alert or Warning
  2. Open the Registry Editor. "Windows-Key + R" and type "regedit"


  3. Browse to the following Registry Key: "[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International]
  4. Right Click the String Value "Locale" and click "Modify"


  5. Change the "Value Data" to "00000409"


  6. Browse to the following Registry key: "[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\Control Panel\International]
  7. Repeat step "4" and step "5"
  8. Browse to the following Registry key: "[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Control Panel\International]
  9. Repeat step "4" and step "5"

When the server Generates an Alert the Alert Description should be in English

  1. Maybe that is the answer: “When the server Generates an Alert…” ? 🙂
    So must that be changed on each and every agent monitored system? Pfuuuu… not sure about the whole impact of that.

    • Hi Patrick,
      Thank’s for the comment. I did change registry value on the servers that I was monitoring.
      You could create a group Policy to deploy the registry values to the server you want to manage
