I mounted a few drives from Linux boxes in my network, but those mounts aren't case-sensitive.
The mount command I used ( from the man mount.cifs, case-sensitive should be the default ):
mount //10.0.1.10/remote_folder /local_folder -t cifs -o username=xxxx,password=xxxx
but those mounts aren't sensitive. for example doing:
ls -l /local_folder/testfile.txt ls -l /local_folder/TESTFILE.TXT
give's the same result... instead of 'file not found'
Couple of important points:
- All drives are running on Linux machines.
- My local machine is running Fedora 18 and it is case-sensitive for ANY folder/file expect the mounted drives.
- All drive/mounts are case-sensitive when when doing SSH. So if I SSH from my local machine to a remote machine, doing
ls -l /local_folder/TESTFILE.TXTwill say
file not foundas it should.
So I believe the issue is in my local machine and not in the way I did the mount. but I'm not sure where to look next (I'm new to Linux)
