Xsan, Lion Server: Use case sensitive volumes for StorNext and pre-Lion clients
With Lion Server, Xsan adds case insensitivity. New volumes are case insensitive by default. You can set a volume to be case sensitive or insensitive by changing the volume settings in XsanAdmin.
Clients that don't advertise support for case-insensitivity will not be able to use case-insensitive volumes. This includes Xsan 2.x clients using Mac OS X v10.6 or earlier, as well as current StorNext clients.
To set whether a volume is case sensitive or insensitive:
- In XsanAdmin, select the volume in the Volumes pane.
- Click the gear icon in the lower right-hand corner.
- Select Edit Volume Settings.
- Check or uncheck "Case Insensitivity" as appropriate.
- Click OK.
Note: Clicking OK will restart the volume, even if no settings were changed. Changing this setting does not require the volume to be reinitialized; data is preserved.
