symlinks over CIFS

MIKEMWALK

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
