Novell Log Manager 1.2


Viewing events in SLM Search and reports shows special characters fine however when we export to a .csv file the characters are not displayed correctly.


Data stored in Log Manager is encoded as UTF-8 in order to see the characters correctly the application you use to open the exported events must display them in UTF-8. Most applications allow for a default character encoding set to be applied. Check and verify that you are viewing the exported document in UTF-8 to ensure the characters are displayed correctly.
