Greetings,

I am getting the following quite a bit in my logs and saw it with
pdbedit -L as well. I read that I should change my unix charsets to
CP850 because of this but it seems that has not helped.

This is a solaris 9 sparc based system running samba 3.0.11. Relevant
parts of the smb.conf are below.

Any help/ideas as to the cause and remedy for this would be greatly
appreciated, thanks. --Jeff
