case insensitivity in multi-protocol environment (cifs/nfs)
2011-08-16 12:01 PM
I'm looking for a bit of information. I'd like to understand how netapp renames/presets files of conflicting case to CIFS. Below I have 3 files and when accessed via cifs those filenames are changed to DOS 8.3 format.
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 Aug 16 14:35 longerfilename.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9 Aug 16 14:35 longerfilenamE.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Aug 16 14:40 longerFILENAME.txt
What option actually accomplishes this? Is there a way to prevent it, or change the behavior? More importantly... is there any way to get CIFS to behave in such a way that a cifs client COULD access longerfilename.txt and longerFILENAME.txt natively?
