We're currently using Samba server version 3.0.28 running on a Solaris
We share users's home directories between Unix and Windows clients and
have to specify the smb.conf parameter unix charset to iso-8859-15 (or
so-8859-1) to ensure correct names for files and folders (containing
accents) from Windows and Unix.... everything is ok :
Windows Explorer looks ok, and "ls" in Solaris also.
We configured GPO in AD server (a windows machine) to redirect special
folders (including Desktop) for user to subdirectories in their home
directory, which is their samba share, and it works fine.
But, whe have problems with files names when creating files directly
from the WinXP Desktop. It seems that the unix charset does not apply on
this desktop redirect folder. Of course, it works if I browse the
desktop folder with Windows Explorer and create files here....
Windows Desktop show Testé.txt
-rwxr--r-- 1 user 0 Feb 14 18:41 TestÃ©.txt
Any ideas ?
