I'm trying to use Drill to query a Symbolic link which is representing a valid folder with one CSV file. Is there any way to make this work? Currently its failing.

 

I can access the same symbolic link from Windows mapped drive and as well within Linux with no issues. It shows up just like a regular folder and allows accessing the file within the symbolic link. I have changed the permissions on the folder and the symbolic link to everyone read/write.

 

In my use case, there are various other reasons why I can have the folder exposed only as a symbolic link and there is no option to avoid it.
