Enabling CATIA V4/V5 Character Translations

The CATIA V4 product is only available for UNIX systems, but the CATIA V5 product is available for both UNIX and Windows systems. When creating files, the CATIA V4 product includes characters in file names that are invalid on Windows systems, which causes interoperability issues when files need to be shared between CATIA V4 on UNIX and CATIA V5 on Windows.

The following table lists the character translations that are available in order to support CATIA V4/V5 interoperability between UNIX and Windows clients. Note that this character translation is only required for interoperability between CATIA V4 on UNIX and CATIA V5 on Windows, and is disabled by default.

Table 3-1 CATIA Character Translation Table

CATIA V4 UNIX Character
CATIA V5 Windows Character
CATIA V5 Character Description
¨ (0x00a8)
¤ (0x00a4)
Currency sign
ø (0x00f8)
Latin small letter O with stroke
÷ (0x00f7)
Division sign
« (0x00ab)
Left-pointing double angle quotation mark
» (0x00bb)
Right-pointing double angle quotation mark
¿ (0x00bf)
Inverted question mark
ÿ (0x00ff)
Latin small letter Y with dieresis
¦ (0x00a6)
Broken bar

How to the Enable CATIA Interoperability Feature

You can use the zfs command to specify whether to perform CATIA translation on a per-share basis by setting the catia property to true. By default, the value is false, which means that CATIA translation is not performed.

  1. Become an administrator, obtain the solaris.smf.value.shares and solaris.smf.manage.shares RBAC authorizations, or use the SMB Management RBAC profile.

    For more information, see How to Use Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Administration: Security Services.

  2. Enable CATIA translation for a share.
    # zfs set share.smb.catia=true pool/dataset

    The following example shows how to enable CATIA translation for the files/acme.sales.logs share:

    # zfs set share.smb.catia=true files/acme.sales.logs
