Via GUI:

  2. If necessary, connect to the computer you want to manage.
  3. Right-click Server for NFS, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Filename Handling tab.
  5. Do one of the following:

    • To enable case-sensitive file and directory name lookups:
      Select the Enable case sensitive filename support in Server for NFS check box.
    • To disable case-sensitive file and directory name lookups:
      Clear the Enable case sensitive filename support in Server for NFS check box.

Via the registry:

DWORD “obcaseinsensitive

  • 1 = system default - insensitive
  • 0 = case sensitive
