We have a batch file which contains etautil scripts to do certain activities like explore account/sync users/assign role etc.
We execute this batch file and etautil commands are loaded in command prompts.
It has been observed whenever a reference to account/role is made where local characters are involved, the characters are loaded incorrectly which causes the script to fail.
We have tried to run such entries directly typing on command prompt, even then it does not work.
Here is a sample:
eTADSAccountName=Søren Wittchen Holm
This is not recognized when running the same in command prompt.
This issue is due to the default code page in use into your MS command shell.
Type "mode con cp" or "chcp" from a dos prompt box; You will get the active CP.
By instance 437 for the United States.
Such a CP as 437 works fine with characters inside of the ASCII range of 0-127.
It is problematic outside of this range.
