I've done this a several times with newer releases and there is no distinction between upper and lower case hostnames. This would be very unnormal behaviour compared to the rest of the IP-world, no DNS Server I know of would make a difference between WWW.IBM.COM or www.ibm.com. (There are cases where this IS the case, for instance the SAP-GUI client used to install the new SAP releases, I think its v4r6 or so, makes such a difference, this is very funny when installing two- or three-tier-systems ...) Back to the topic: in newer releases of OS/400 you can even get rid of the suffix SNA.IBM.COM if this is of any problem for you, but I do not have the Info APAR number at hand at the moment.
