System objects: Require case insensitivity for non-Windows subsystems

Updated: January 21, 2005

System objects: Require case insensitivity for non-Windows subsystems

Description

This security setting determines whether case insensitivity is enforced for all subsystems. The Win32 subsystem is case insensitive. However, the kernel supports case sensitivity for other subsystems, such as POSIX.

If this setting is enabled, case insensitivity is enforced for all directory objects, symbolic links, and IO objects, including file objects. Disabling this setting does not allow the Win32 subsystem to become case sensitive.

Default: Enabled.

Configuring this security setting

You can configure this security setting by opening the appropriate policy and expanding the console tree as such: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\

For specific instructions about how to configure security policy settings, see Edit security settings on a Group Policy object.
