Windows/NTFS – this works from one file system to another: `junction -D`

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/20

I’m glad that junction did work to create a directory junction to link a directory from one NTFS file system to another with this small batch file (that falls back from mklink to junction):

  @echo off
:start
  if !%1!==!! goto :help
  goto :main
:help
  echo %0 TargetFolder
  echo   Creates directory symbolic link using MKLINK or JUNCTION so that TargetFolder points to %~dp0
  goto :eof
:main
  :: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-symlinks-in-windows-vista/
  call :do mklink /D %1 %~dp0
  call :do junction %1 %~dp0
  goto :eof
:do
  echo %*
  %*
  goto :eof

Some more reading on juncions, hard links, symbolic links, etc:

TinkerTry IT @ home | Download ESXi 5.5 Update 1 and the other vSphere Update 1a pieces to get your home lab started

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/20

Interesting:

This is a refresh of last month’s article, Download ESXi 5.5 Update 1 and the other vSphere pieces to get your home lab started, with new download links for the Heartbleed related vCenter Update 1a release that arrived today, April 19, 2014. It is a work in progress, and will updated frequently, throughout the next few days, as I test and retest the links and procedures. The hypervisor itself (the first download) appears to be unchanged, the same 5.5 Update 1 (not 1a) released back on Mar 11 2014. It appears the only thing that has changed has been a patch to SSL certificates to address Heartbleed, as described in the release notes.
