Creating an NFS Referral

You create an NFS referral by using the nfsref command. When a referral is created and the mount point does not yet exist, a symbolic link is generated. This symbolic link includes a special flag that identifies an object as a reparse point. A reparse point is a special marker used to note that special handling is required. If the reparse point already exists, NFS service data is added or replaces existing NFS service data, as appropriate.
