Hi folks,

I manage the AD with rsat and recently we had problems with the CN of some
users that have accentuation. When checking the user configuration via
samba-tool user edit <username> in the location where the CN should be
readable, a hexadecimal or something of that type appears.

E.g: Acentuação da Silva

dn: CN=Acentuação da Silva,OU=TESTE,DC=teste,DC=intra
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: user
cn:: QWNlbnR1YcOnw6NvIGRhIFNpbHZh

Any configuration I need to put in smb.conf?
