In case the missing directory path is known, a fresh lookup on that path will heal the directory entry across the cluster and it will be shown on the mount point.
e.g on the mount point: ls <COMPLETE PATH of the directory>.
* The directory may not get a fresh lookup on the existing mount. In that case, the best thing to do would be to create a new fuse mount and do ls on the directory path.
