Description Norman Zhang 2004-09-30 19:03:40 UTC
This bug was originally reported at
http://bugs.mandrakelinux.com/query.php?bug=1158. The maintainer thinks this is
an upstream bug; thus, I'm reposting it here and hope that a proper fix is in place.
Comment 1 Norman Zhang 2004-12-09 11:47:07 UTC
I've upgraded to 3.0.8, and changed security = ADS in smb.conf. Now Samba
creates lowercase computer_name folders in homedir instead of uppercase
user_name folders. Please see http://bugs.mandrakelinux.com/query.php?bug=1158
for more information.

I think this is a serious bug. Many users on samba-users list also saw the same
thing, but couldn't find a solution to it. My report on samba-users could be
find here, http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=samba&m=110256134212709&w=2. Folder
names were still in uppercase because I was using 3.0.6, but everything else are
same. So I didn't bother with a capture for 3.0.8.
