Description Don Eisele 2005-09-01 09:54:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
I have this in smb.conf:
default case = lower
preserve case = yes
short preserve case = no

Yet 8.3 all uppercase filenames are still getting saved on the UNIX filesystem with uppercase names, instead of lowercase.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Add to smb.conf:
default case = lower
preserve case = yes
short preserve case = no
From a windows machine on the share, create a file TEST.TXT

Actual Results:  The file shows up as TEST.TXT

Expected Results:  The file should be test.txt

Additional info:

this is causing major problems with users thinking they lose files, as ls sorts upper case filenames before lowercase ones.
