Disable 8dot3name in one volume disk

Hi Experts!!!

I have a one File Server with OS Windows 2008 Server Enterprise.

This Server have a 4 disk.

I need disable 8dot3name for only one disk.

I try the followins commands:
1- fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 VolumeXXXXXXX 1
2 - fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 E: 1

But the system not recognized this command....as a picture

If I try "fsutil behavior query disable8dot3" without especify any disk or volume, this query works fine.

I change the registry value NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation to 2 " Enable 8.3 naming convention creation on a per volume basis"

If i try this commando on Windows Server R2, this works fine.

Exist any limitation if I use Windows 2008?

I find articles on microsoft that explain can make this change in a single volume, from Windows 2008 Server

Microsoft indicates an error in their documentation, in fact, only in Windows R2 and Windows 7 may be disabled 8dot3name by volume.

Thanks a lot!

Hi John!

In Windows 2008 Server, is not posible this command.

In Windows 2008 R2 YES, but in Windows Server 2008 not possible.

The command is fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 1

This command disable 8dot, but disable for all disks and volumes, I need disable 8dot3 for one volume, volume I:

In Windows Server 2008 R2 I can disable a one volume with this command --> "fsutil 8dot3name set I: 1"

Any ideas?? I'm desperate  :(
