Merging NTFS permissions with ROBOCOPY
Posted on 2004-10-07
I'm having trouble using the 2k3 resource kit tool ROBOCOPY
I've copied all the data I need from the source to destination server using the "/e /sec" switches.
Unfortunately I'm trying copy is an IIS site with local machine accounts (IUSR_<machine> ect...)
I've deleted all the source server's local machine accounts on the destination folders and added the destination server's local accounts, then replaced permissions on all child objects from the root down.
Now I need to copy the source NTFS permissions to the destination server, WHILE PRESERVING the new local machine account permissions that I've just created.
Each time I try to copy the NTFS permissions (/COPY:SOU) it completely blows away my new permissions and resets them with the source servers.
Is there a way to append the destination server permissions with the source server permissions?
