NBU should now be more intelligent to recongnize case-insenstive for hostnames and fqdns . 

It really annoys when we see same name in UPPER and lower under clients tab.

More over list of clients does not appear under BAR gui (have to remember what did we put while creating policy (UPPER/lower hostname/fqdn)

If client already existing within any policy, it should show faded when we type it manually add clients. SO we get to know it is already added and same we have to select, rather then duplicating it with upper/lower names. I'd rather said, Keep NBU more neat and clean

Why make it case-insensitive at all ? I'd rather just see NBU auto-convert all client names to lowercase and be done with it. No capitals = no problem. =)
