Problems with accents in Samba


Well I had problems with accents in filenames…

I tried changing the filesystem localization to french, it didn’t help I tried changing the system locale (/etc/sysconfig/i18n under CentOS/RHEL), it didn’t help

I figured out the accents trouble was only occuring when dropping a file though smb

I then finally found out these parameters to add in your smb.conf configuration file :

dos charset = CP850 unix charset = ISO8859-1 display charset = LOCALE

It fixed the issue for me with the FS and system locale always under en_US

Thanks for reading this post!
