Need to move shared space - Need to maintain security rights and priviledges
Posted on 2008-06-18
All Windows 2003 Server environment.
Corporate shared space ... call it the S:\ drive ... needs to be moved to a data-only server.
Shared space is on a partition of it's own on ServerA and needs to move to un-partitioned drive on ServerB.
All directories have some sort of assigned Security\Right\Permissions assigned; e.g. Domain Users can't see inside the HR Folder, only the CEO and her assistant can get into the CEO folder, etc.
I believe a straight XCOPY, under the Administrator login, is losing the assigned rights and permissions.
Please don't laugh. We all have to do somethings the "first time" ... is there a better way?
