Mount two volume in the same namespace

AchilleAubert

Hi all,

 

I have two volumes in which there are several directories:

- vol1 (share name SHARE1):

/AppData

/Temp

- vol2 (share name SHARE2):

/Users

 

I would like to change the mount path of the second volume in order to have my directory Users visibles in the root of vol1:

- vol1:

/AppData

/Users

/Temp

 

But once I changed the mount path of vol2 and affect it to vol1, I see now in vol1:

/AppData

/SHARE2/Users

/Temp

 

How can I remove the share name of vol2 (SHARE2)? Is it possible?

Thank you.

you might want to check the junction path

What are junction paths? 

You may also consider using symbolic links:

Thank you @tahmad but junction path is the fonctionnality that I already use in this case.

Hello @AchilleAubert ;

Can you provide what does your junction-path looks like for each volume in question. Per example you can run the below command:

 

cluster::> vol show -volume vol1,vol2 -fields junction-path

Hello @hmoubara 

 

Thank you for your reply.

Here is the output of the command:

 

cluster::> vol show -volume vol1,vol2 -fields junction-path
vserver volume junction-path
------- ------ ------------------
VSERVER vol1 /vol1
VSERVER vol2 /vol1/qtree_vol/vol2
2 entries were displayed.

Hello @AchilleAubert 

 

Can you perform the below:

 

cluster::> vol unmount -vserver VSERVER -volume vol2

cluster::> vol mount -vserver VSERVER -volume vol2 -path /vol1/vol2

 

Thanks
