p.s. forgot to mention parameter settings for the share we are having problems

preserve case = yes

default case   - not set - default = lower
mangle case    - not set - default = no

Subject:  AutoCAD file names UPPER CASE on samba

Hi folks, we are experiencing a problem when AutoCAD 2000+ drawing files
are saved on a Samba (2.0.8) file share.
Regardless of what the file is 'saved as', the name is always converted to all
     e.g.  Drawing1 becomes DRAWING1

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem.
Seems strange that it is only AutoCAD files, but I think it is Samba related,
not AutoCAD, since the files save ok on local  drives.

We are using a mixture of NT and 2000 clients.
Samba 2.0.8 is running on Solaris 8 servers.

Any help appreciated.
