I have some users who login on different workstations and the case of the username is different: John.Doe might be john.doe on another workstation. I would like WMX to treat this as the same user. I figure this might addresses by a windows configuration change, but I'm hoping I can leave the OS alone and just have WMX ignore case.

Tell your IT guy you should really be using a domain with roaming user accounts. – blah238 Nov 11 '11 at 15:53
I'm 99% certain that they are the same account: user logs in with the same domain\username on both workstations. – Jay Cummins Nov 11 '11 at 15:58
Huh, don't know then, that is odd indeed. – blah238 Nov 11 '11 at 16:12
