Anyone that knows why you have more options for language settings when creating a vserver in the CLI then you have in the gui from system manager?
When creating a vserver from system manager you can choose language 'C' but when doing it from CLI you can choose both 'C' and 'C.UTF8'
for use with special characters it can be very bad to choose the wrong language.

I believe this issues has been reported as a bug to the System Manager team and will be fixed in an upcoming release.
You should be able to get the same list of languages on System Manager as you do on the ONTAP CLI.

is there a way to specify a default language for newly created vservers? Since the language can't be changed afterwards this could cause some trouble, e.g. with snapmirror relationships...

The language for a Vserver can only be defined at the time of creating the Vserver. If the language setting for a Vserver needs to be set to a different value then you will need to create a new Vserver with the correct language settings.

Once you set the language for a vserver I don't believe it can be changed. In 8.2 you can create volumes with different languages. Once volume language is set the destination volume for snapmirror must be the same.

Actually, 8.2 allows you to modify the language of the vserver.
::> vserver modify -vserver nfs -language

Now whether it's a good idea is another story... if you have volumes with different languages, it might cause issues.
