JSI Tip 2941. SFM does not support mount points.

If you use Mount Points with Services for Macintosh, you might find:

- Security settings are ignored when a mount point is shared as a Macintosh volume.

- Security settings are ignored when you place a mount point in a shared Macintosh volume.

- You receive errors when you move or delete files in a mount point.

- On a MacIntosh, you may receive errors when you access a reparse point subfolder.

Do NOT use mount points with SFM.

Use drive letters when sharing Macintosh volumes.

See tip 2263.
