I am Sorry. If I have complicated the senerio But, this still not fix my
What I want is - From your example :-
/db4 (symlink to /data/disk2/mysql/db4)
/db5 (symlink to /data/disk2/mysql/db5)
/db6 (symlink to /data/disk2/mysql/db6)
I dont want to create these directories here (/data/disk1/mysql/d4
/d6). Also is it somthing that in disk1/mysql it will not create physical
folder of it.
Thanks and Regards,
