symlinks over CIFS

Is there any way of telling if a file seen over CIFS is actualy an NFS symlink on cluster mode?


I want to be able to ignore softlinks when walking the filesystem to avoid actioning the same file twice and to avoid possible directory loops


I can use the hide symlinks option at the share level, but it would be nicer to do it at file level so I don't have to force clients to change their config
