The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 10473
Conversion error: Illegal multibyte sequence(%96vning_02)"
Last modified: 2014-03-01 00:24:03 UTC
"After upgrading to Freenas 9.1.1 and 188.8.131.52 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-184.108.40.206-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:
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.
