so the Debian OS didn't put up a warning or anything like that and a user was created with upper case letters. Are we stuck with this or is there a way to rename the account name without messing up the file shares and security settings?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

How did you enter the username? Maybe had caps lock on? I've always used a lower case name and it's always created exactly what I typed. I can't imagine why it would give a warning.

Because the infrastructure does not play nicely with a name that has an upper case letter in it.

would there be a reason to change the UID when i change the name?
