FUSEX and map link

Hello,

Are the links defined with the map link command supposed to still be active under fusex client ? We have some old definitions and we realized that they are not seen when accessing with a fusex client. Just to know if we could enable them by some parameter, or if this has been deprecated (we do not have any real need to use them)

Thank you!

Hi Franck,

eosxd is an inode based implementation. The closest replacement is a symbolic link in the namespace e.g. the map is not supported when using eosxd.

OK, thank you for the answer @apeters, it confirms what I thought.

Yes, symlinks seem the way to go, anyway.
