Powershell commandlet Remove-NcFile doesn't work in symlink type

[ Edited ]

THe command Remove-NcFile fails when I try to remove the below link

 

 

C:\Windows\System32> Read-NcDirectory u1/shared  | ? {$_.Type -eq "symlink"} | Remove-NcFile -Confirm:$false
Remove-NcFile : No such file or directory
At line:1 char:59
+ ... 1/shared  | ? {$_.Type -eq "symlink"} | Remove-NcFile -Confirm:$false

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ApiException,DataONTAP.C.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.File.RemoveNcFile

 

The symlink exist :

 

PS C:\Windows\System32> Read-NcDirectory u1/shared  | ? {$_.Type -eq "symlink"}

Name                                     Type            Size      Created     Modified Owner Group   Perm Empty
----                                     ----            ----      -------     -------- ----- -----   ---- -----
_Exchange_Insite                         symlink        38 B     27-Sep-17    27-Sep-17     0     0    755

 

Any idea ?

 

Thanks

What is the path to the file/symlink that is being passed to the Remove-NcFile cmdlet?  Note that it should be "/vol/<volumename>/path/to/symlink".

I tried also this syntax :

 

Remove-NcFile /vol/u1/shared/_Exchange_Insite -VserverContext SVM_BP2I

 

The issue still there.

Just to confirm, I tested on my ONTAP 9.1P2 system and didn't experience any issues.

 

Read-NcDirectory -VserverContext $svmName -Path "/vol/$($volName)" | ?{ $_.Type -eq "symlink" } | %{ Remove-NcFile -VserverContext $svmName -Path "/vol/$($volName)/$($_.Name)" -Confirm:$false }

 

What version of ONTAP are you using? What user are you connecting to the cluster as?  What is the permission style on the volume?

Thanks for your replay !

 

Versions tested : 8.3.2, 9.1 and 9.2

 

Storage :

cifs share modify -vserver SVM_BP2I -share-name data1 -path /vol/data1 -symlink-properties read_only,enable

 

Here a part of the script to create and delete symlink

 

Create :


new-ncsymlink -target /home/SVM_BP2I/data1/_Exchange_Insite/ -LinkName /vol/u1/shared/_Exchange_Insite

add-nccifssymlink -unixpath /home/SVM_BP2I/data1/_Exchange_Insite/ -cifspath /_Exchange_Insite/ -locality widelink -sharename DATA1 -CifsServer 10.65.180.184

 

Delete :


Remove-NcCifsSymlink -VserverContext SVM_BP2I -UnixPath /home/SVM_BP2I/data1/_Exchange_Insite/

Remove-NcFile /vol/u1/shared/_Exchange_Insite -VserverContext SVM_BP2I
