My question would be related to the comment with the fix:

    "made sure all user and group names are case-correct"

Since windows seems to adhere to the rule:
"Case preserving", but "case ignoring", what does it
mean to make sure all user and group names are
case-correct?

>From what little I understand in the area, the case that is
preserved is the 1st one used on a given machine.

However if we are talking non-Windows LDAP/AD, who knows
what is done.  Sigh.
