If a Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) client using Windows NT Explorer double-clicks a directory containing Russian characters on a File and Print Services for NetWare (FPNW) server, an error message is displayed:
The folder xxx is not available, folder has been moved or has been
All files and directories below this directory are not accessible.
After you receive a directory listing from a FPNW server and in the process of accessing one of these directories by double-clicking it, CSNW converts a Unicode string to an OEM string for NetWare compatibility reasons. During this conversion, the directory name with Russian characters was incorrectly changed into uppercase. Therefore, the client tried to access a directory containing only uppercase characters on the FPNW server. Because this directory does not exist on the FPNW server, the above error was displayed.
