Using Directory Links to access data outside the Notes\Data path

The only SPR I could find in this area was fixed back in Domino 6.0. I have not seen or could not find any current issues involving directory links.

In my opinion directory links work great, but you have to be careful not to create recursive links.

I also recommend that only one Domino server should access any directory. Meaning do not create a directory link that points to the data directory of another active Domino server.

Using Directory Links to access data outside the Notes\Data path

Can anyone verify this bug with a technote or SPR#? We use these all the time and would like to see the conditions of the bug.

Using Directory Links to access data outside the Notes\Data path

Warning, there is an unfixed bug where the dir links in memory is different that the one on disk. I would suggest using OS scheme instead of the DOmino one (symlinks, ntfs junctions, etc...)
