pvfs2-ln – create a soft link in an OrangeFS volume
pvfs2-ln -s [-Vvh] target link_name
The pvfs2-ln utility creates a soft link (symlink) at link_name which points to target where target will be in an OrangeFS volume. The link_name may refer to files across file systems and even non-existent files.
The options are as follows:
Display verbose messages.
Print version number and exit.
If set to the path of a local file, redirect debug output to it.
Set the OrangeFS debug mask. Possible masks are documented in pvfs2-set-debugmask(1).
If set, the full pathname for an alternate pvfs2tab file
Create a link at /mnt/bar referring to the file /mnt/foo referring to it by a relative path.
pvfs2-ln -s foo /mnt/bar
Create a link at /mnt/bar referring to the file /etc/motd which is not in the OrangeFS volume.
pvfs2-ln -s /etc/motd /mnt/bar
A link to a file outside of the OrangeFS volume will refer to a different file if the file system is mounted at different mount points or on different machines.
