I am trying to migrate user shares and profiles from a 2000 server to 2008 server. I am using robocopy.
What I have found is that I think when they were created them that they had the "give user exclusive rights" box checked so now most but not all the folders do not allow administrative access.
I am hoping that someone might be able to point me in the right direction as to the most efficient and effective way to copy these shares with user permissions in tact?
Should I go to parent folder where user folders reside and add administrator and propagate permissions down to child containers. Does administrator need to take ownership of all the folders to copy? If so, will that mess up the permissions for user and is there any easy way to take "bulk ownership" of folders to be copied?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
