Our setup… We need to link a folder (that not exits jet) in E:\ (local drive) to a share .
In this case we need to create a symlink to a network mapped drive…
First, we need to map the share with net use in permanent mode..
Run this command:
net use P: \\srvvc\storage\test /user:\administrator xxxxxxxxx /persistent:yes
Now we need to verify the state of remote symbolic links and, if not, enable it.
Run this command :
fsutil behavior query SymlinkEvaluation
So we have to enable it with this command :
fsutil behavior set SymlinkEvaluation R2R:1
At this point we can create a Symlink to a network mapped share with this command:
mklink test p:\test
