I'm trying to move a series of Netware directories to another location.  Trouble is that these files (and dire ctories) loose all their trustees and access rights.  Has someone any idea about how to copy them, and keeping all the settings ?

Thanks,

Filip

What do you mean annother location? The answer is different based on where you are moving them to.  A different server, different
volume on the same server, a different directory on the same volume, all would require a different technique, and the NOS
is a factor.  What is the NOS 3.12 or 4.xx?

Filip,

Jstegall's questions are good ones.  In the last few months Novell has released some unsupported utilities to do what you want.  They seem to work with various Netware versions and destination locations.  You can read more about them and download them at the links below.  

The first one will copy trustee rights directly...I assume you use it after XCOPYing or NCOPYing the files and directories.  The second utility lets you back up and restore trustee rights, by creating a series of commands which will grant the rights which existed previously.

Hope one of them works well for you!

Peace^^Paul   (see links below)

You can try a software called nwcopy. It'll carry all your rights and attributes, and also VERY FAST.
