Windows server 2008 NTFS / SMB2.0 changes part II (network usage)

You can access harlink-ed files and Directory junction folders over the network… Even if files and folders are not shared (only “linked” to one of your shared folders …)

 Network accessability example

Windows server 2008 NTFS / SMB2.0 changes part I (mklink)

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

 Making SYMLINK without any parameters using MKLINK command

 Making SYMLINKD using MKLINK /D command

 Making HARDLINK using MKLINK /H command

 Making JUNCTION using MKLINK /J command

When you are using this command you should know that …

  • When using without any parameters it makes symlink between two files … Files are accessible only localy on same machine.
  • When using with /D parameter it creates symlinkd link between two folders … linked folder is accessible only localy.
  • When using with /H parameter it creates hardlink between two files … This file is normaly accessible over the network and localy.
  • When using with /J parameter it creates so called Directory junction that makes folder accessible using different name… It works localy and over the network.
    So now you are able to share a folder in which you can put Directory junction folders, that normaly are not shared…
