TSM ANS4042E one or more unrecognised characters and is not valid , Linux client

When backing up on a Linux client to TSM getting the error :-

ANS4042E Object nameĀ  contains one or more unrecognised characters and is not valid

In our case we had file names based on surnames – some of which had non english characters.

The fix was :-

export LANG=C

In our backup script.
