Description Camilo A Reyes 2005-11-22 19:05:25 UTC
filenames that appear in a mounted share directory cannot be changed to lowercase characters, the same problem occurs when extensions are in upper case and you wish to change them into lowercase characters.

i.e. rename .HTML .html *.HTML, has no effect on the files at all

Windows clients expect the file names to be case insensitive.
I don't understand what you mean by this report.
From a Windows client's poitn of view, foo.html and Foo.HTML
are the same file.

it is not only through a windows client that the problem occurs, it's happening through the regular linux console when you mount a share using smbmount.

smbfs is case insensitive as well.  Try the cifs fs instead.  
No bug here.

great, one last question, what's the name of the tool that mounts that fs?
