Here's the scenario.
- Client - Windows 7 workstation
- ServerA - Windows 2008 file server
- ServerB - Windows 2008 file server
mklink /D c:\Share\Link \\ServerB\Share\Dest
That works great. It's what happens on the client that's of interest.
What I want to happen on the client as you drill down into the folders:
\\ServerA\Share \\ServerA\Share\Link \\ServerA\Share\Link\Folder1... etc
I.e. seamless access across the link, and the user doesn't even have to know we've linked to somewhere else.
What actually happens is:
When you drill into Link, the path switches! The link is literally followed to ServerB.
\\ServerB\Share\Dest \\ServerB\Share\Dest\Folder1... etc.
Is there anything that can be done to allow the client to follow the link seamlessly / transparently?
Note: even though drilling down causes the path to switch to ServerB, typing in a full path using ServerA works perfectly across the link.
Note: this does not happen with links made using /J, but since I need to link to another server (Remote to Remote), I don't have the luxury of using /J
