there's a command in the resource kit called

scopy.exe

SCOPY.exe (Resource Kit)

Copy complete with NTFS Security Permissions

syntax
      SCOPY source [destination] [/o] [/a] [/s]

key
   /o  : copy owner
   /a  : copy auditing info.
   /s  : copy files in sub-folders.

SCOPY will accept UNC pathnames.

To copy other users' files, or to use the /o or /a switches, you must have Administrator privilege.

Hi again

in the windows 2000 resource kit there is another tool called permcopy.  

This command-line tool copies share (Full Control, Read, Change) and file (Full Control, Modify, Read & Execute, Read, Write, Traverse Directory) level permissions (ACLs) from one share to another.

 


Important

Copying permissions to an administrative share located on an x86-based computer will cause Services.exe to stop.

here is an example


"permcopy \\SourceServer ShareName \\DestinationServer ShareName"

Where:

\\SourceServer ShareName
is the source to use for share permissions.
\\DestinationServer ShareName
is the destination share where permissions are applied.

cogit,

I wish I did.

We went from a WAN with 6 buildings to a LAN. We consolidated everything into 1 building. If I had anything I would definitely help you out there.

Sorry man

GL with the upgrade.

Robo will work good for you there..
