Hi everyone

I need ot migrate a server from NT to AD 2003 domain with ADMT. I am going to use security translator wizard for share level and ntfs level acl translation. My question is this:

I like to be able to copy file\ntfs level permission on data on the server. if something goes wrong, i can apply original permission. Is there such a tool which let me backup permission and restore them again by overwriting current permission.

please note that I am not interested in copying data from one server to another as this is server migration from NT to AD. My problem is that if something goes wrong during security translation with ADMT , i like to have a way of turning back to original state before running security translation. Data i have is around Terabytes, so i can not check every file\folder to see if their File\ntfs level permissios is intact if something happens during security translation, let say server can get stuck or admt can get frozen.

please let me know if there is such a tool that let you backup permission on folders/files and restore them by overwriting current permissions

Servers i am talking about is Windows 20003 and NT boxes.

Thanks
