Long File Name Support In Solaris


I am facing the problem in solaris in which, i found that whenever I am copying any file directly from windows based PC to solaris the file name become automataically squizzes to 8+3 [dos file support]. In this case I am facing the problem in which I have to again rename file as actual then only it works properly.

i.e the actual file name "abcdefghij.iope" is converted to "abcdefg_.iop"

Can you confirm is there any setting to avoid this in solaris.

You mean you are copying files with samba? or from a cd which is burned in windows?

Samba has no problems with names i think.. For cdrom choose joliet and rock ridge extensions while burning..
