Cant get norwegian characters like æ (ae), ø (oe) and å (aa) when importing by DSADD

This is my command:
dsadd user "CN=aseoyvin,OU=Elever,OU=Elever,OU=Brukere,DC=sknett,DC=no" -pwd OABC1815 -fn "Åsen" -ln "Øyvind" -display "Åsen Øyvind" -disabled no  -uc -desc "12.11.2010"

Saved in notepad as ANSI file.
When opening user. the norwegian letters are wrong in Firstame, Lastname and Displayname.
 Have also tried UNICODE nothing happends at all. The cmd file is not running at all.

Everything else works ok when importing.

I would suggest using for that "edit" command. It is old DOS text editor which saves all characters in text file for batches properly :)

Open command-line and type

edit

then type all syntax MANUALLY and save it as batch file. Run it from command-line, should work well :]

One remark. It is not recommended using national language signs. This situation can cause problems with proper display. Especially do not use this characters in logins and passwords :]

Krzysztof
