Comment 1 Didier 2004-08-30 10:10:58 EDT
The very same issue when trying to store NTbackup.exe backup files to
a Samba share is also fixed with the aforementioned patch.
Comment 2 Didier 2004-08-30 11:06:10 EDT
The aforementioned patch is implemented in samba-3.0.4-6.3E (part of
samba-3.0.4-backport.patch), but nevertheless, NTbackup.exe (MS
Windows 2000 standard system tool form backup/restore management)
still cops out.

Please find attached an smbd.log (debuglevel 5) ; of special interest
is line #108 of the log :
"  conversion finished lxxxuB)x ->."
In the original log file, the 'x'-marked characters are actually
non-printable characters.

This doesn't look too koosher to me.
