[Samba] Russian(Cyrilic) names not working in smbclient 4.3.3

Thanks for the reply. Based on having a problem with 4.0.7, and I don't see upcase.dat anymore, I thought something changed in 4.3.3, which may have caused my issue. As it turns out, the password changed without me knowing it. It all works as it should. Russian is always a little tricky for me to debug!  

Sorry for crying wolf ...

- Mike

In 4.3.3, we don't see it trying to access that file, nor do I believe that file needs to be delivered anymore. Is there a new way to configure the printer to use Russian user names ?

More data please. What does "that does not seem to work" look like ?

Logs etc. etc.
