  • Create filename from NFS client with non-UTF-8 characters into UTF-8 volume, some characters are showing garbled.

Example:

  1. Volume language code set as C.UTF-8
  2. Linux clients access via NFSv3 and create a filename using a non-UTF-8 language, such as euc-jp.
  3. Check filename by ls command, the file name shows garbled.
  • A file with a file name containing a specific character string cannot be written to the NFS mounted area.
