Issue

This error is seen in the following situations:
1) Volume create/mount:
When creating a volume with a junction path /vol/volname or mounting a volume to a junction /vol/volname, the following error is displayed:
cluster1::*> volume mount -vserver vol -volume vol1 -junction-path /vol/vol1

Queued private job: 588
Error: command failed: Failed to create or determine if a junction exists
       within volume 'root_vol'. Error occurred with the remaining junction
       path of '/vol/vol1' for the given path of '/vol/vol1'  Reason:
       Junction create failed (2).

Note: Creating or mounting junctions to /volname works fine.

2) SVM-DR initialization fails with the error:

Last Transfer Error: Failed to apply the source Vserver configuration. Reason: Apply failed for Object: root_direct_mounts Method: baseline. Reason: Failed to create or determine if a junction exists within volume "dst_SVM_Root_Vol". Error occurred with the remaining junction path of "/vol/dst_vol" for the given path of "/vol/dst_vol"  Reason: Junction create failed (2).
Execute "snapmirror show -destination-vserver dst_svm -fields last-transfer-error,unhealthy-reason -expand" to check if the constituent volumes have encountered errors.
