The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 155
Problem accessing directories with names containing ASCII 128+
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:29:03 UTC
Figured this is a common bug but it doesnt seem reported yet.
We have an NT server that has directories with names that containing special
characters (c with cedille, a with tilde, and so on, anything above ascii 128),
having trouble accessing those directories from linux (Rh7.3).
Doing an ls shows for example Area Reservada (the accent doesn't show in ls but
on the NT server it's there). Changing to that dir even seems to work, but as
soon as I try to do an ls inside the dir I get stale NFS file handle.
By the way guys, there seems to be a similar problem copying files with accented
filenames from windows ME to windows 98 or v.v., without samba at all, so it
might just be a problem in the protocol. Just wish the people at my company
realized that using their native accented characters can be a problem ,) Anyway
them from their win machines seem to access the dir just fine. For now.
Keep up the good work!
You need to configure the unix charset for whatever you have been using, or
convert names to UTF8 on the server.
