Description John Hixson 2014-02-27 07:24:57 UTC
"After upgrading to Freenas 9.1.1 and 9.1.1.1 the following error message shows up on the consosle :
"Conversion error: Illegal multibyte sequence(%96vning_02)" and many others.

It looks like there is some problem with Swedish character, "%96vning_02" for example should be "övning_02".

FreeNAS-9.2.1.1-RELEASE-x64 (0da7233) SMB3
Windows 7 64 bit

See attached screen dumps, error on console, ls in shell and missing names on files in Windows Explorer."

After looking around google for a bit, I came across:

https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2013-September/175571.html

I looked at the code that was referenced and it is indeed "fixed", however, this problem continues.

What is the filename character encoding as stored on the disk ?

It should be in utf8.

So it appears this was a configuration issue. I'm sorry for the noise ;-)

The person in question with the problem changed their character set to 
CP850 and things behaved correctly.
