Subject [jira] [Commented] (MESOS-5881) Semantics of `os::symlink` differ across POSIX and Windows
Date Fri, 07 Apr 2017 19:02:41 GMT


Andrew Schwartzmeyer commented on MESOS-5881:

We need to confirm that you really cannot use any system API to create a broken symlink; I
was fairly certain this is possible to do on Windows (I thought I fixed PowerShell to support
it), but now I need to research it.

> This issue causes the following tests to fail on Windows:
> * RmdirTest.RemoveDirectoryWithNoTargetSymbolicLink
> * OsTest.Realpath
> On most POSIX implementations, it is possible to create a symlink with a target that
does not exist. On Windows, attempting to create a symlink pointing to a target that does
not exist will cause a runtime failure.
