I have to upgrade a 2.2.8a (Debian) installation to 3.0.14a (Debian
too). I have quite everything clear but I am afraid I will get into
trouble with the filename encoding on disk.
The current samba installation has no explicit codepage declared for the
file system, and running "testparm" gives only these settings (which are
default) for codepages and charsets:
coding system =
client code page = 850
code page directory = /usr/share/samba/codepages
character set =
The system's current locale is "POSIX".
I have never worried about charset before because the files in the samba
shares need to be accessed only by samba (not locally from Linux) so
even if I had inconsistent file names between samba and local shell
access, I was not worried, but now that I need to upgrade Smaba, I need
to mantain consistent names between samba 2.x and samba 3.x.
I suppose I will need to run convmv on the directories that are shared
by samba to translate the file names to UTF-8, but the question is: what
charset is in use now? From the testparm output I could not guess it, so
i don't know how to convert my files.
