Oracle application that needs to have 8.3 filename (old dos) support turned off to work correctly.

We are using this an Oracle application that needs to have 8.3 filename (old dos) support turned off to work correctly.

Is there a way on the filer to disable 8.3 file creation support on a particular CIFS share?

Thanks for any help!

old thread I know but I'm looking at possibly something similar. Have you guys tried to simply *hide* the 8.3 names?

options cifs.show_dotfiles off

we have yet to test but have a similar problem with an app seeing 8.3 names...
