Plz help me with linked filesystems...thx

SunOS 5.10 Generic_142900-15 sun4u sparc SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise

I need sys-admin help from someone. I have 2 file systems that are both mounted
/CV and /eabatch. under /eabatch/in/data is a hardlink to to /CV/in/data

lrwxrwxrwx 1 batchop batchtaa 11 Mar 6 2009 data -> /CV/in/data

I've been asked to remove the link and copy all the files from /CV/in/data to /eabatch/in/data. Although this seems straight forward, are there any issues or considerations I need to be aware of ? My plan was to make a copy of all the files in /CV/in/data before I remove the link.

---------- Post updated at 07:48 PM ---------- Previous update was at 07:40 PM ----------

If I remove the link from /eabatch will that delete /cv/in/data?

No complications if thats a hard link...just proceed what you wanted to do..

But in your case as per the o/p below its a soft link.

lrwxrwxrwx 1 batchop batchtaa 11 Mar 6 2009 data -> /CV/in/data.....

Thanks. Is it better to use rm to remove the link or unlink? I am wondering if the data will be deleted from the linked file/directory
