hi I just wanted to try if I can mount a webdav storage remote via mobile connection. Which failed for some reason, which I accept but it somehow left me with a corrupted mount point

root@utopia:/mnt/ghc# ls -la
ls: cannot access ghc-exchange: Transport endpoint is not connected
total 12
drwxrwxr-x  4 konnertz konnertz 4096 Mar 27 06:55 .
drwxrwxr-x 18 root     adm      4096 Mar 25 21:57 ..
d?????????  ? ?        ?           ?            ? ghc-exchange
drwxrwxr-x  2 konnertz konnertz 4096 Feb 11 19:57 web
root@utopia:/mnt/ghc# file ghc-exchange 
ghc-exchange: ERROR: cannot open `ghc-exchange' (Transport endpoint is not connected)
root@utopia:/mnt/ghc# ls -la ghc-exchange 
ls: cannot access ghc-exchange: Transport endpoint is not connected
root@utopia:/mnt/ghc# file ghc-exchange 
ghc-exchange: ERROR: cannot open `ghc-exchange' (Transport endpoint is not connected)

The issue is following: I did a symlink from /mnt/ghc/ghc-remote to /mnt/ghc/ghc-exchange because I wanted to add the webdav entry additionally to an already existing CIFS entry into fstab. It is the same storage I can mount inhouse via cifs and from outside via webdav and if one does "mount /my/mountpoint" as user it has to be non-ambiguos, So that's why.

But honestly I did not expect that to work, Just tried.

And that result is new to me. What steps to go to repair that inode full of question marks?? thx

HERE's what I did , few things as root , not posted here.

konnertz@utopia:/mnt/ghc$ ls ghc-exchange
ls: Zugriff auf ghc-exchange nicht möglich: Der Socket ist nicht verbunden

konnertz@utopia:/mnt/ghc$ ls ghc-remote
ls: Zugriff auf ghc-remote nicht möglich: Der Socket ist nicht verbunden

konnertz@utopia:/mnt/ghc$ mount

konnertz@utopia:/mnt/ghc$ ls -la
ls: Zugriff auf ghc-exchange nicht möglich: Der Socket ist nicht verbunden
insgesamt 12
