The Symbolic Link Cannot Be Followed Because Its Type Is Disabled

When trying to access a symbolic link, you get this error:

The symbolic link cannot be followed because its type is disabled.

This is because the Remote to remote symbolic links are disabled. To confirm this run the following command:

fsutil behavior query SymlinkEvaluation

To enable this and allow the symbolic link to be followed, run this command:

fsutil behavior set SymlinkEvaluation L2L:1 L2R:1 R2R:1 R2L:1

This should set the Remote to remote symbolic links to enabled and get rid of the symbolic link cannot be followed error.
