3.56. Changes for Windows 8 and Server 2012

In Windows 8 and Server 2012 Microsoft has introduced a new file system, ReFS, and has begun the process of transitioning away from several legacy file system properties including 8.3 compatible short names for all file system objects. The OpenAFS file system has followed suit and is disabling automatic generation of 8.3 compatible names on Windows 8 and Server 2012.
