Folder Migration from NT to SNAP Server

By rgilbert ·
Am looking to move Folders (with associated Permissions) from a Windows NT 4.0 server to a SNAP server. Does anyone have a process to do so quickly? At this point I can only see setting up folders on the SNAP, moving data and then recreating Permission ..... a looooooong process as there are 100's of Folders, sub Folders, etc.

Snap Servers can obtain a user and group list from your NT Domain Controller for authenticating users. When integrating with a Microsoft NT Domain, the Snap Server takes advantage of the security settings that are already established. In a Microsoftdomain Snap Servers allow pass-through authentication for the global users and groups from the domain controller and supports host name resolution from a WINS server.

Thanks for your quick response.

Yes, when setting up new Folders on the SNAP and assigning Permissions, the existing user data is OK. My problem is with the moving off 100's of Folders and sub folders with the associated Permissions. When they are moved, they assume the Permission on the SNAP share (everyone).

In the NT4 Server Resource Kit, there is a utility called Scopy (scopy.exe). This utility allows you to COPY files from one NTFS volume to another while maintaining security permissions.

I'm not sure it works, but how about using backup and restore?

I dont have a Snap-Server
But you can try robocopy with /sec fro teh Nt-Resource-Kit
It copies the security settings
