Hello all,

I have a (A) Win 2k8 Std without Hyper-V OS and a (B) Win 2k8 R2 Std.

I need to transfer directories from A to B.

I am using Robocopy, it transfers the permissions but in target I have to go to the Security Tab, Advanced, Owner, Edit, choose Administrators, ok, ok then I am able to access the folder.

Instructions set used:

ROBOCOPY /Mir P:\Doug Z:\Doug

ROBOCOPY /E /Copy:S /IS /IT P:\Doug Z:\Doug
ROBOCOPY P:\Doug Z:\Doug /MIR /SEC /SECFIX

The security descriptors change on the new machine, which wouldn't match the owner on the old machine, thus rendering the security useless.  You can use CACLS afterwards in your script to grant full permission to a user/users/group to automate the ownership change.

Unfortunately, this is by design and completely necessary.
