This is a tough one I am trying to solve for a month already.
I receive data from some clients and some of them come from non-windows OS.  Broken pipe/bars as folders or file names.  Windows shares take these characters just fine.  However when trying to copy to NetApp CIFS it rejects.
Now the interesting thing...I am able to rename a file successfully on my vFiler.  It took the names without issue.  I then manually created a file with the broken bar and copied to vFilers without issue.  It seems there are other hidden characters in the files clients sent me.  I can actually delete the broken bar and then using the ASCII code (Hold ALT, then type 0166, release ALT, and the Broken Bar will be created) to create a new broken bar, and it will then copy to the NAS.  I attached a rar file to have an idea.
Anyone familiar with issue?

since the data comes from non windows systems have you enabled mixed mode on the cifs volume so ti can do nfs/cifs?  This may or may not fix but worth a try.  I would also open a case with Netapp as well

Thanks Paul.  The case with NetApp is already opened and they doing some lab analysis on this. This is rate first case for them also they say.
Interesting idea on enabling mixed mode.  My environment is Windows only.  No NSF shares.  Only data comes from Linux.

If it comes from linux then it's natively knows NFS.  Setup a test volume with nfs/cifs enabled and see what happens.

We cannot export a share for both CIFS and NFS.  We can create an NFS export for our Linux VM, but it would be the only one that could access.

My storage admins saying you cannot enable mixed mode in only windows environment.  Just not possible.  Not sure how to tackle it here.  Weird.
