 <samba at lists.samba.org>Hi,

I'm using windows 7 as client and a Samba 4.1.21 server.
I would like to create symbolic link on a share with mklink,
it failes with a reparse point error message.

Trying to find more information i found this discussion

So it seems that i'm not the only one to trying to do that without success.

Reading microsoft SMB documentation i found that this feature is optional
and the
server may or may not support it.

Is it something that exists in newest version, or maybe it is in the
roadmap, or will
never be supported ?

Best regards,
