Hi..

 i try to move one large .dmp file
 to other disk space.

 let say from /export/m.dmp to /tmp directory

 in export the files is owned by sysops
 
 $ -rwxr-xr-x   1 sysops   dba

 when i cp the file to /tmp

 the owner is root.

 i try to move using sysops id but get error
 'no permission,access denied'

 how can i grant back the file to sysops.

 tq

If you use cp command, the file permission will change, use
the tar command instead.

  delete the file in tmp first,
     rm /tmp/m.dmp

  make a copy of the file in /export, and put it to /tmp,

  cd /export
  tar cf - m.dmp  | (cd /tmp ; tar xvf -)

  the above commands will do the job for you.

-p option works for Sun's propietary /usr/xpg4/bin/cp only.

Either use the given tar solution, or make
   chown sysop newfile
after copying.
