What sort of direct attached storage do you mean? If it is a device running it's own OS (ex., a NAS), then perhaps it's own OS is in case sensitive mode, despite what you think.

Take a look at the partition scheme as well, perhaps the drive is HFS+ formatted, but the scheme might be MBR when it should be GUID. That might cause unexpected results.
Also, was that storage/folder shared before, did you just attach the drive to the macmini from a previous server. Perhaps some old permissions got stuck on that share.

This is not a known or understood bug.
What NFS (network file system) are you using to connect to the file server ? AFP, SMB, NFS ?
Temporarily make some shared space on the boot drive of the server. Copy the folder to it and access it from a client. Do you have the same problem with that space as you do space on the 'direct attached storage' ?

If you have a problem please start a thread of your own. Don't get us confused between solving two different problems.
The subject of this thread is dealing with:
- "Server 10.8 file sharing problem"
- Specifically for direct attached storage file sharing permissions issue.
- Client computers having issues with folder permissions
These are exactly my issues as well. I was hoping to try a solution here or maybe proffer a solution if found elsewhere. I did not realize each problem should be opened as a separate discussion....
Sulking back into the shadow...

Simon is just trying to help you out. Although some of the same symptons are present, it could be a different issue. With the same thread, it's hard to tell if you followed the same steps as the OP in diagnosing and attempting to fix the problem. It's easier for everyone involved if separate threads are maintained - particuarly with such a time difference. Please don't be discouraged from asking for help (no need to sulk in the corner), just start a new thread.
