Accessing Symbolic Links on Unix File Shares

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by humbleaptience, Feb 1, 2007.

  1. Hey Ya'll,

    I basically have a bunch of unix servers with a dataset scrambled
    through about 10 of them. On unix, I maintain a symbolic link file
    tree so that for each server it appears to have access to all the
    files through auto mounting and so forth. I want to be able to
    access this same file tree from my asp.net web app and NFS - however,
    it's not working and I've tried everything. Microsoft Services for
    Unix just doesn't cut it with symbolic links whether I use UNC file
    mapping or I try to map the drive from the web application and access
    the mapped share - the symbolic links just don't resolve.

    The only thing I can think to do is to maintain a DFS file tree on the
    windows server all the time so that I can have access to the files
    from my asp.net web abb - I'm not even sure if that should work.

    You don't need to have an answer, but suggestions of any kind are
    welcome. Thanks!
