Symptoms

When attempting to change directory or open a file which is affected by this issue, the client system may indicate that the given directory or file does not exist.

But when listing using the "ls" command, we can clearly see that the directory/file exists and we have permission as well.

Adding to the confusion is the fact that two directories or files, with the same name, at the same place in the filesystem hierarchy,  may be displayed.
