Description Phil Davis 2005-05-15 09:59:42 UTC
Existing WfW (Windows for WorkGroups 3.11) clients stopped being able to run
commands on share when server updated from samba-3.0.9 to samba-3.0.14a.

Steps to Reproduce:

Logon to domain from WfW machine
Open DOS window
Change to shared drive letter from server
Type "DIR" and notice that all filenames are in lowercase
Type "type test1.bat" and get contents of remote file displayed fine.
Try to run test1.bat batch file and get "Command not found" error from DOS

If I manually rename the batchfile to uppercase TEST1.BAT on the server
then it can be run from WfW client but this is not a useful workaround for
our system.

I downgraded the fileserver (Fedora Core 2 x86 box) back to 3.0.9 and WfW
clients then work again and a DIR listing in DOS window shows filenames in
