setting locale en_US.UTF-8

I am using SOLARIS sparc 64 bit, during installation of Oracle i receive an error required OS locale en_US.UTF-8 does not exist on the installation computer. To avoid this issue, please ensure that the locale en_US.UTF-8 exists on the installation computer prior to installing Oracle.

when i check it from my solaris os it shows below results, kindly assist me that how locale en_US.UTF-8 is set. Thanks in advance

-bash-3.00$ locale -a

May be your locale is not set to en_US.UTF-8 . Check the /etc/default/init file . You need to add the desired locale in this file. What is the content of /etc/default/init file ?

a system reboot is required after setting the locale. After the restart please check the output of locale command
