Or simply copy NTFS permissions with
robocopy /copyall
and copy Shares and share permissions by ex- and importing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Shares

Edit: the latter import gets applied after you restart the service named "server".

hey mcknife this method worked great for the shares,  is there a a way to do the same for shared printers?  Or do I need to re install and re share out the printers as well.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Not sure, would have to google myself (for "migrating printers" or something).

I have just finished moving the file shares from 2003 to 2012R2 and have a strange issue.  Staff save file attachments from email to their network share.  If they look in explorer the files are there.  They primarily use Citrix published apps to run applications and when they try to attach the newly saved file to the application, the file is not seen even if all files option is selected.  it can take 5 minutes for the files to be seen in the application, if at all.  If they exit the citrix app and restart it, the files are there. Is there a setting in 2012R2 that can be adjusted to allow instant viewing of the files?  We did a similar move to a 2008 server and had the same issue pop up. The files were always instantly available on the older 2003 server.
