Thanks for the additional information.  It sounds like you are running
into the issue on the Linux side of things, where you are locating files
on a cifs mount hosted natively by Windows.  Remember, Windows has very
poor symlink support, and cifs is accurately reporting that it cannot
create a symlink because the underlying file system on the native
Windows side can't represent symlinks.  This is not a bug in ln, but a
fundamental limitation of your choice of file system.
