I have a file server in the child domain that has folders with NTFS permissions, I would like to move that server to the parent domain.
Before I do that I would know what would be the consequences.

All user groups are universal.

thanks

jskfan-

I believe the permissions will revert to the default inheritence of the location your are copying the files *to*.

To mitigate this issue, and to make your copy MUCH easier, I suggest using ROBOCOPY.  This is a Microsoft provided utility that allows you to granularly copy files based on attributes, as well as providing the ability to copy permissions.  

Using the additional ROBOCOPY GUI makes things much easier then just using the command line interface.  

You can then create a script, and run it at various intervals *ONLY copying changes* essentially syncing the directories!

Thanks,

Justin

Actually inheritance it's not a big problem, since there are not many folders in the server, so I can just go back and remove the inheritance.

I just want to know what should I considere  beforing disjoining the server from the child domain and rejoining it to the parent domain.
I know if there is any group I will need to make it universal.
