Thanks for the response.

Yes this is a zone and I connect via ssh.

You are right zlogin behaves differently. In may case it set all LC's to
"C" and LANG=""
I don't get any complaints about locale but its not really correct is it ?
I would expect it to be en_US.UTF-8 as in the init file.

pkg list *locale*

Hmm no en_US.UTF-8 in /usr/share/locale

The zone are new. Well created with the GZ's 2017.04 and updated to 2017.10
but the GZ goes way back and have lived for 15+ years starting off as
Solaris 8 moving to OpenSolaris and now running OI for the last 5? years.

Thanks
