Hi Guys,

i dont know why ln is not working.

this is what i did.


Z:\ostore_platform_logs\ostore\7.4.0\test1\linux64>c:\cygwin\bin\ln -s
diva_test LATEST

in the above line "diva_test" is a folder.

it is created a new file as "LATEST". not as symlink.

drwxr-xr-x 2 test1 rdl 4096 Jul 18 05:26 diva_test
-rw-r--r-- 1 test1 rdl   32 Jul 18  2013 LATEST

or is there any other way to create symlink? or any other command. for
e.g., windows mklink command?

Can someone please help?

Thanks & Regards,
