We currently have 2 domains with a two way trust, we would like to have our helpdesk be able to use robocopy to move folders from one domain fileserver to another fileserver on the new domain including share permissions and security but I do not want them to be domain admins to do this. what permission will I need to give them.
thanks in advance
just to note we tested as a domain admin and all was well until we pulled the user out of the domain admin group.

They are going to need MODIFY permission on the target and READ on the source.  For them to create share's they will need admin permission on the server

they have full permiission on both for now...I was more concerned with a way they can do this without being a domain Admin...unless you mean make them a local admin on the new FS?

They don't need domain admin.  Just give them admin access on the source server and the target server.  This will be sufficient

They don't realy need admin access on the source, they only need read permission.  If you do trust your helpdesk then admin rights will be ok

You should be able to set permission on the CIFS box itself.  What CIFS storage is it?

Never used one.  Do you manage it from a web interface?  There has to be some where in the config where you can configure the permisions
