Error description

  • When you are working in an IBM Rational ClearCase dynamic view,

    version 8.0..x and later.  All files will be downcased when

    WORKAROUND:
    
    If you select both Case Insensitive and Case Preserving, you
    will not experience this behavior.

Problem conclusion

  • This problem has been fixed in ClearCase 8.0.1.12 and 9.0.0.2.
    On Windows, in case sensitive mode (not the common default,
    which is case insensitive) the case preserving flag is now set
    correctly so names keep the case they were entered with.
