issues with mklink?

Recommended Posts

I'm having issues with MKLINK too:

 

D:\>mklink /j D:\Backups d:\ServerFolders\Backups

Junction created for D:\Backups <<===>> d:\ServerFolders\Backups

 

D:\>cd ServerFolders\Backups

 

D:\ServerFolders\Backups>mkdir test

 

D:\ServerFolders\Backups>cd \Backups

 

D:\Backups>dir

Volume in drive D is Data

Volume Serial Number is 1234-5678

 

Directory of D:\Backups

 

The parameter is incorrect.

⌂  12:57 AM    <DIR>          .

The parameter is incorrect.

  12:57 AM    <DIR>          ..

              0 File(s)              0 bytes

              2 Dir(s)  174,632,579,072 bytes free

 

 

I verified I'm not duplicating either folder. I also have just one pool and one mount point.

 

 

I just tried making the link on my logical C Drive, and it appears to work okay:

C:\>mklink /j C:\Backups D:\ServerFolders\Backups

Junction created for C:\Backups <<===>> D:\ServerFolders\Backups

 

C:\>cd \Backups

 

C:\Backups>dir

Volume in drive C has no label.

Volume Serial Number is 6005-3ED6

 

Directory of C:\Backups

 

05/29/2012  08:42 AM    <DIR>          .

05/29/2012  08:42 AM    <DIR>          ..

              0 File(s)              0 bytes

              2 Dir(s)  174,632,579,072 bytes free

 

C:\Backups>d:

 

D:\ServerFolders\Backups>mkdir test

 

D:\ServerFolders\Backups>c:

 

C:\Backups>dir

Volume in drive C has no label.

Volume Serial Number is 6005-3ED6

05/29/2012  09:06 AM    <DIR>          test

              0 File(s)              0 bytes

              3 Dir(s)  174,632,579,072 bytes free

 

Any ideas what's going on here? Should I just make a DB support ticket?

 

Thanks,

Justin

It never hurts to open a support ticket. I've always received stellar support.

 

Also, you should make your own post with your specific issues to not confuse them with the OP's.

Thanks, I went ahead and made a ticket. I expected that my issues were basically the same as the OP, and I've been trained to not open new topics with the same issues.  :)

 

Edit:

Support confirmed there is a known issue with MKLINK on pool drive mounts. We'll have to keep an eye on the change log for updates I suppose.

 

Cheers!

I'm having issues with this now, and for some reason, the last time I added a drive to the pool, the Live TV Buffer insists on sitting on the pooled drive, which we know causes issues. I really need the ability to create a smlink on that pool to get the buffer off of it.
