    Folder permissions

    Locked

    by blair.stjust ·

    Is there an easy way to get all the folder permissions from an NT 4.0 server to a W2003 server for firstly testing purposes, I have copied the folder structure over (without files)and the old users and groups but need the permissions to continue testing. Any suggestions?

      the nt 4 resource kit contains:
      perms.exe
      and the showacls.exe

      (you can send the output to a file.)
      which shows you the permissions on the folders.

      then you have to set them manually on the w2003.

      Yes there is a way. Robocopy has a switch for moving security with them to new server or device that support NT security. But the actual users need to be in both locations. The command looks like

      robocopy /SEC
