I have a samba share mounted as a network drive. However, I can't make any sort of symbolic link or junction point to it. Is this possible?

When I try the following command:

mklink /D X:\Samba\dir C:\path_to_dir

I get "The file or directory is not a reparse point."

mklink /J X:\Samba\dir C:\path_to_dir

I get "Local NTFS volumes are required to complete this operation."

Any thoughts?

No, it's not possible. You can create symbolic links only to local drives. And the error message says it.
