Fileshare's names do not always maintain the case in which it was entered when assigning through DxEnterprise.


This is not specific to DxEnterprise. We have observed this behavior outside of the product. When you enter all upper-case or all lower-case SMB share names, they are converted to lower case by Windows. If you have mixed-case names, they appear to be preserved. The end result is the same, as the SMB protocol does not distinguish between cases. It is purely cosmetic.
