Description Gamid Isayev 2006-02-16 11:12:37 UTC
When I tried to create tar file for existing service '\тест' ("test" in Russian), I got NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_INVALID error.

There is command which I used:

$ smbclient -s smb.conf //JOKER/pub -A ~/credfile -Tc /tmp/test.tar '\тест'

Domain=[TEST] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
tar: dumped 0 files and directories
Total bytes written: 0

My locale is set to "ru_RU.utf8" and smb.conf file contains only two lines:
  display charset = UTF8
  unix charset = UTF8
Comment 1 Gamid Isayev 2006-02-16 11:19:04 UTC
It looks like smbclient parses tar command parameters first and only then reads smb.conf file (see attachment).
As result service name parsed as ASCII string and corrupted by unfixtarname() function.

Quick hack to default to UTF-8 instead of ASCII

I made quick hack to default to UTF-8 instead of ASCII.
Why default to UTF-8?
1. UTF-8 is backwards compatible with ASCII
2. I'm using UTF-8 :)

this is no problem any more these days, sorry for the long lack of feedback.
