permissions - nt4 to w2k

By chipw ·
(I hope this doesn't show up twice, I don't see it listed on My Questions, so I'm trying again).
I have set up a w2k server to replace a dead nt4 server. It will be a file server only. I have already copied the public/share directories/files over to one of it's hard drives, now to do the private directories/files from another nt4 box. When I copy the dir/files from the nt box to the w2k box, what will happen to the permissions? I would like them to stay as is, untouched. Will they retain theiroriginal permissions after being copied from nt4 to w2k?

permissions - nt4 to w2k

by chipw In reply to permissions - nt4 to w2k

I have just installed the win2000 server resource pack, dated august 2002 from msdn disc 0020.1. I am using win2000 advanced server. The other machine is NT4. Both machines hard drives are ntfs. When I run robocopy the files and directories are copied across with the names changed to .dat files, and no directories. I have tried it with the /mir /sec switches. I don't see any info about the problem in robocopy.doc. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
