Hi, today I want to shed some light on mount point icon when mounting a new volume on Windows server 2012 , perhaps you have had an issue whereby your mount point icon appeared as a normal folder icon instead of a mount drive icon.
A problem mount point Icon shown as a normal yellow folder with an arrow:-
A normal mount drive Icon :-
You created the mount point folder from windows explorer first before using windows new volume wizard to bring online, enable and point your new volume to the mount point folder you manually created. Do not create the folder manually , rather use the new volume wizard to create it.
Make sure when you are creating a mount point, you need to create the mount point folder from the ‘New Simple Volume Wizard’ in disk management of your windows server.
Create a new mount point folder and follow the prompts to complete
Once it is done, your new mount point will appear with the correct mount drive icon :-
I hope this helps anyone who have encountered this issue.
