Can't delete file

Hello everyone!
yesterday we succeeded in deleting a corrupt directory - with the help
of "Marcel" (thank you once more!) and fixlinks.nlm.
Now I am back again with a problem that seems to be almost the same but
on another server:
NW65SP6; NSS-Volume;
There are 3 files in a directory which cannot be deleted or renamed.
I tried to delete the files with
- NRM (all 3 files are visible), but only one file can be accessed and
trying to delete this file ends without errors - but the file is not
deleted. Trying to access the 2 other files -> error: "Page not found";
- CPQFM.NLM (only 2 files are visible ...?);
- NWadmn32: (all 3 files are visible);
- C1: (only one file is visible and one "<invalid name>" ...?);
- toolbox: (all 3 files are visible);
- ftp: (even the directory is NOT visible); ...

I tried to change the file-attributes with NSSCPT:
********
Failed to open specified path
NSS error code is 20403
Use NSS /ERR=20403 on the System Console for a basic error description
********
nss /err=20403:
********
Error=zERR_INVALID_NAME
********
I tried to fix the names:
NSSCPT Vol: -D -fixnames: finnished without errors

I used FIXLINKS.NLM:
************
FIXLINKS: Total no. data sets fixed : 0
FIXLINKS: Total no. data sets failed(to fix) : 0
FIXLINKS: Total no. data sets scanned : 7
************

But nothing did change anything ... at least, the directory can be
renamed and moved ...

Hi,

It seems that some of your clients are running a older cl32 version
which does not handle utf8 correct.

As long as that isn't fixed, u will keep getting these problems.

Hi Alex,
the files are dated to mai 2006 ... so, you can be right with your
assumtion. in the meantime, there should be no more older clients - i
guess (... without guarantee ...)

But how do I get rid of the files?

I had the most luck with renaming files with cc.nlm

If the various tools u have by now do not help u in any way, then a
support call at NTS would be needed.

Make sure that all the clients have utf8 support set to
on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alex,
CC.NLM shows only 2 files. The files can neither be renamed nor deleted 😞

Nothing did help ...
I wonder if I should dare to do a nss-poolrebuild ... but the volume
(~350gb data) is used 7*24 hours a week from hundreds of users ... a
poolrebuild takes quite a lot of time. and it is not quite harmless.

FileAttrib.exe did not help neither.
