I will be moving the users folders and files from the IFS to a new small business server.  Is there a easy way to print a listing of all permissions on these folders and subfolders to provide me a resource to setup up the new permissions on the new server?

It's not at all clear what you mean by either "small business server" or "permissions".

When discussing permissions in the IFS, it's necessary to distinguish between i5/OS 'authorities' and Unix-like 'permissions'. They do not always map very well.

For example, this Qshell command:

 ==>  ls -AFRl /home/toml >/home/lsattr.txt

I might use that to populate a streamfile in the /home directory named lsattr.txt to list recursively everything within my /home/toml directory. "Permissions" are included, as well as an indicator of what kind of object is listed (directory? executable? symbolic link?) since it will be handy for you to recognize subdirectories, I think.

But I'm not at all sure if that's the kind of thing you need.

More info about what a "small business server" means might help. Or it might not help.

If you're going to need to create a map of authorities by users and/or groups, this might be pretty complex.
