Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a server with win7 and a big share on

C:\share

In this share there are many symbolic links to files on other local disks like

C:\share\file.txt(symlink) <-> D:\file.txt

I can access the file over:

C:\share\file.txt

\server\share\file.txt

but if I try to access from an other pc I can't open the file. I'm able to delete, rename ... the link but it seems that the symbolic link isn't processed by the server.

Can I change something with cifs to make this work?

I already checked the acls of the link and the file and set them to allow everybody everything. I also can access the file with d$.

Hope there is a solution...

The plan was to build an alternative to dfs or whs but anyway thx for your post –  fpdragon Feb 15 '11 at 15:14

I found the same thing. Didn't find a solution and wound up abandoning using symlinks altogether.
