Specifying locale IDs on the command line

When you extend a virtual server, create a new top-level Web site, or create a new subsite from the command line, you can specify the locale ID to use. The extendvs , createsite , createsiteinnewdb , and createweb operations all accept the LCID parameter. To provide a locale ID for any of these operations, type the numerical value for the locale, such as 1033 for US English or 1036 for French/France. For example, to create a subsite and use the French locale ID for France, use the following syntax:

stsadm.exe -o createweb -url http://server_name/site1/subsite1 -lcid 1036

Each of these operations take several other parameters. For more information about these operations, see the .
