JSI Tip 3122. How can I change the way that case is presented to a NFS client using Services for Unix 2.0?


Services for Unix 1.0 had menu commands to accomplish this, but they are NOT available in Services for Unix 2.0.

The menu commands were:


 - NTFS Case - Upper, Lower, and Ignore

 - FAT Case - Upper, Lower, and Ignore

 - CDFS Case - Upper, Lower, and Ignore
Luckily, the underlying registry values are still functional.

To modify these values, use Regedt32 to navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NfsSvr\Parameters

   Value name: NtfsCase
   Value type: REG_DWORD
   Value data: 0 - ignore (default)
               1 - lowercase
               2 - uppercase

   Value name: FatCase
   Value type: REG_DWORD
   Value data: 0 - ignore (default)
               1 - lowercase
               2 - uppercase

   Value name: CdfsCase
   Value type: REG_DWORD
   Value data: 0 - ignore (default)
               1 - lowercase
               2 - uppercase
If you use a Windows 2000 NFS server to share Jerry.txt, a setting of:

0 displays Jerry.txt

1 displays jerry.txt

2 displays JERRY.TXT
