Moving Shares on Win2K Server

By CurtisInterruptus ·
I have a Windows 2000 server that I recently added another Raid drive. Now that I have that available disk space, I want to move some of my shared directories to it. (they are all on the same computer) As a test, I moved a "non-critical" share to it, but noticed I lost the "share" AND all the assigned security settings? How can I move these shares without losing all the critical security info?

What RAID are you using? RAID 5? or a MoBo onboard IDE RAID? Virtual drives?

Raid level 1 - mirror (2 scsi drives with 1 spare) on an Adaptec 3 channel Raid (model 1000U2). I have 2 raid level 1s and 1 ADR tape backup on the card.

if you move a folder from one partition to another (using ntfs), the folder will inherit the security settings of the target parent folder. if you move a folder on the same partition, it will retain its setting. shares will be removed if you move a folder.

So... according to R. A. Caluste's answer of 12/2/02, then I will just have to totally redo every setting for each share I move onto the new raid drive? OUCH!

Shares you will always have to recreate (since it is uniqu on each computer). However for NTFS permissions there are some tools that can help you. These tools are included in the Resourece Kit.
Showacls.exe will dump all the permissions of a given folder/file
Xcacls.exe will set the permissions on any given folder/file. You can use xcacls.exe to accomplish what you want, or you can use both.
