Permission denied on symlinks


Hi ,


I have two SVMs on my cluseter .SVM1 contains home directories and the SVM2 only symlinks to the home directories .

everythink is fine with the SVM1 but when i create the sylmlink to home directories on SVM2 by unix box i can access it but with windows i get error on permission access.


(all my home directories are unix style on SVM1 are unix style)



on SVM2 i have volume and one qtree and under the qtree i have the symblinks . 



i checked on SVM2 the name-mapping and authentication translate all works fine .



Any Idea about this issue ?


Thanks for your help
