Migrating file share and permissions

By Walilaw ·
How can I migrate shares with permissions from NT 4 server to 2000 member server in a NT domain? (User data, profiles, group drives)

Is there a backup software that can do this and restore file security?(share permissions and NTFS permissions)Many thanks in advance for your advice!

Hi,

Secure Copy from Small Wonders software (smallwonders.com) will do what you want. There is a cost about $395, I think, but this is a great tool for network admin too. It is very flexible. They have a trial version that may take care of theimmediate need but it is limited to number of directories that it will copy. It will allow scheduling of backups from machine to machine. Take a look.

A less expensive way is to use scopy (part of the NT resource kit) this will copy the permissions.
Open the registry and go to key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\LanmanServer\Shares
Export the Key to a file
Copy that reg file to the 2000 server.
Edit the file using notepad to remove any undesired shares.
Double-click on it and it will be added to the registry. This will recreate your shares.

PERMCOPY.EXE, from the NT Resource Kit, will "Copies file- and share-level permissions from one share to another."
This tool is not a free download from Microsoft, so you will have to find a copy.

Hope this helps.
