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

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  :(

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!
