Broken encoding for the GetUserInfo operation - 11:48am Sep 3, 2021 CDT -

Pavel,

 

Ok, we’ve determined the issue…

 

That string tests positive as UTF-8 within our xml implementation (even though it is not truly valid UTF-, so it is not getting converted… which produces garbage characters when emitted.

 

We have a solution which should be in the next 21.5 Beta which most likely is due out next week. If you are not a member of our Beta-Testing Community, I would highly recommend it.

If you are using Secure Authentication, so that no passwords are in your userlist.dat, I would very much like to get a subset of your userlist.dat that contains just the records that cause problems. If you could zip up that data and upload it to our ftp server, it would be greatly appreciated and would help us avoid this problem in the future...

Pavel,

 

Is that copied from the MDaemon UI’s account editor?

 

If so, then there is likely a problem with the data itself.

 

What you sent appears to be munged already.

 

I need it as it appears in the MDaemon UI so that I can figure out what is causing it.

 

Thinking that perhaps the data is not ANSI in the Userlist.dat, perhaps In the userlist.dat file it is already encoded (it shouldn’t be).

 

What language is the MDaemon Installation?

 

How do these names render within Remote Administration?

When I edit a user’s First and Last Name in the MDaemon UI to include accented characters, such as …

 

Mr. Fãñtåstïć

 

It renders correctly when I make a call to GetUserInfo…

 

Plain Text of xml

<FullName>Mr. Fãñtåstïc</FullName>

 

As UTF-8
