Applies to:

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 1.0.0.0.0 and later
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

If a file name has a special character (Latin/Greek/Cyrillic/Coptic/Armenian/Hebrew/Arabic/Syriac etc.) and If you do an " ls " from anywhere on NFS with a special character, it gives a Remote IO Error

For example:

  1. In the ZFS Storage head BUI, create a new share, say  "/export/NODE_2/test_utf8"
  2. Mount it using NFSv4
  3. create a file whose name contains non-ASCII character

     

upone " ls ", it will fail with remote I/O error.
