we run a samba 2.2.8 server and like to migrate to a faster, new server 
running samba 3.0.2a.

I thought to copy all files from the old to the new one mounting the new 
shares by nfs. For a test I copied some files using scp.

A problem concernes the german umlauts:

on the old server they aren't displayed if I "ls" the files while 
browsing the share works fine. If I copy the files to the new share, the 
files are visible in a terminal by e.g. ls, but not visible on the share 
mounted by my client :-(

I'm using the default settings for character coding or the charset options.

Any ideas how to solve my problem? Is ther a (easy) workaround?
