Changing Ownership of Files and Folders
Posted on 2004-03-29
We currently have 2 domains at the College. One domain servicing the teachers and staff (A) and the other domain a child domain is servicing the students (B). We have a script that is run twice a day to using xcopy syntax to copy data from the students folder to another server on Domain (A). This is an extra backup that we use just in case of emergency retrieval of data , instead of loading the tape and restoring.
The problem that I am experiencing is that I am unable to change the ownership of the files and folders for the student data to administrator of domain (A). I recieve an error " unable to set new owner on username. There is not enough space on the disk."
This is quite confusing as there is over 300GB of free space and without changing the ownership to administrator on the folders, I am unable to use the script and replicate data to the other server. If I change the ownership to the administrator of domain (B) there is no error message the ACL is updated accordingly.
