- Open a text editor on the Sametime Community server.
- Open the sametime.ini file located in the Sametime Community server installation directory The default directory is C:\program files\lotus\domino.
- In the Config section, add AWARENESS_CASE_SENSITIVE= 0.
Starting in Sametime 8.5, by default, the Sametime Community server is not case-sensitive. This is the suggested configuration. This setting controls whether it is possible to add a user ID to the contact list, using different case, than the case used in the Directory. When you add this setting and give it a value of 0, the Sametime server is no longer case-sensitive.
- You must restart the Sametime Community server for the change to take effect.
