Samba should mangle names containing '\' to 8.3 names.
The code in is_legal_name() should catch names containing
'\' and report them as needing mapping to 8.3.
Indeed if I check this locally with smbclient I get
(for a share containing a file created with:
$ touch 'file with \ in it'
I see the file:
listed from smbclient -mSMB3
Check how you have Samba configured Steve.
