Answer

Adjust the -is-search-short-names-enabled option from the vserver cifs options modify tree to match your desired behavior.

vserver cifs options modify -vserver <vserver_name> -is-search-short-names-enabled true

For more information see vserver cifs options show 

Additional Information

Example.  When doing a dir *.txt from the command line, I get different results on different systems even though they are supposed to be the same.

  • System 1:  dir *.txt returns 

file1.txt
file2.txt001

  • System 2: dir *.txt returns

file1.txt
