I have my music and movie collection on a linux server and the file names contain non-ascii characters. This is in itself no problem as the music server also runs on the same server and everything is fine.
The server's locale settings are:
root@lms:~# locale LANG=C LANGUAGE= LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
and the clients (macOS Sierra) are:
09:15:38 ~$ locale LANG="en_US.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"
But I am using OS X / macOS on my desktop computer and would like to manage the files (tagging, sorting, ...) by using OS X programs. I have created an NFS share on the linux server as follow:
/exports/Music 192.168.1.201(rw,async,crossmnt,no_subtree_check,insecure,all_squash,anongid=1002,anonuid=501) 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(ro,async,crossmnt,no_subtree_check,insecure,all_squash,anonuid=501,anongid=1002)
and mounted on the Apple:
lms:/exports/Music on /Volumes/Music (nfs, nodev, nosuid, mounted by rainerkrug)
My problem is that I can not copy the files with non-ascii characters using Finder (finder tells me
The operation can't be completed because one or more required items can't be found. (Error code -43)
Where error code -43 meand "File not found".
But I can copy the file from the terminal.
This is also reflected as I can not open the file on the external volume by using right mouse click, but I can open the local one which I copied using the terminal, or that other programs (e.g. Metadatics for editing tags) can not see or work with the files.
This whole thing sounds rather strange to me, as macOS and Linux can work with the non-ascii characters (accented characters in particularly), but macOS has problems when accessing on the share?
Is there anything I can do except changing the file names to ascii characters? Are there mount options I should set?
I should mention that this problem is not new in Sierra - it was there under ElCapitan as well.
