Hello All, Does anyone know if formatting in case-sensitive mode really messes anything up? We have some Xserves, and an Xserve RAID that I'm trying to migrate some data to. The original data lives on a RedHat Enterprise box on an NFS share. The NFS machine used to host our user's home directories in our Roaming Desktop setup. Now, in trying to copy the files to the Xserve, it appears that a number of the files on the NFS share were named where the only unique identifier is the case of the file name (dog.jpg and DOG.jpg). Since I formatted the Xserve partition as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) it still relies on the the old Mac-case sensitivity rules (as in, can't do it). So, when I start to bulk copy files, it eventually flags that a file has a case sensitivity issue, and bombs out of the copy process. So, I'm wondering if formatting in Mac OS Extended (Case Sensitive) will create any issues, and if that should alleviate my problems. Also, I'd like to know whether it will cause any issues with Roaming Desktops, or if there are other issues I need to be aware of. If any one knows, it would save me hours of digging through folders, and renaming files.
