I switched to BI-Server 3.0.0 and ReportDesigner 3.0.0 RC2 a few days ago and have an strange issue with reports, if I choose to render them as PDF. Special chars like the german ä, ö and ü are not rendered right, they are just cut out. The strange thing on this is, that they are displayed properly on my local installation, only our BI server seems to have problems with them.

I am working on Windows XP, our server runs Debian 4.0. The locales are set to de_DE.UTF-8.

I know that I could set the encoding in the report to UTF-8, but this doesn't solve the problem on the server.

Does someone of you have any hints for me?
