Hi,
I have shares on Mountain Lion server with rights as per OD accounts.
We are migrating OD to AD.

Is there a way that the shares which are now on having rights as per OD can be migrated to AD along with ACL's?

Unfortunately, no, you will have to recreate these on your NTFS share.

Also, I would recommend the following:

-  use a product called name cleaner before migrating your data. It will remove all special characters that the Windows filesystem does not support.

- Make sure that you use a Mac to transfer the files to the new Windows share or you may lose your resource forks on your files.

If you want to keep the files on the osx server but use ad for auth, that's a setup I have running fine. Let me know if that's a direction you want to go

Hi,
Apologies for coming late, have been trying various things.

Now, this is the problem I am facing, any help is Greatly appreciated.

I am using Mac & want to copy the files to the new share which is on Windows Box, the command I am using is:

rsync
& the syntax is:

rsync -rltg  -> change group (the issue is that this tries to change the group on destination, which results in error, as there is no group on Destination).


rsync -rlt -> not able to make structure on destination

I am open if you have suggestions about rsync or other options.

Please respond soon, I am STUCK.


regards,
A

I mean on the windows box. Is it joined to OD?  How do you expect windows to know groups and users?

The domain is AD, not OD.
The previous domain was OD, we migrating to AD.

The Mac is joined to AD, running the command on Mac as Sudo.

if rsync is not working properly for you, I will recommend that you make use of this Mac app. Pro soft Data Backup http://www.prosofteng.com/products/data_backup.php

I used it to move 2TB from a Mac to a Windows server about 18 months ago. it worked great for me.

When i had to do somethig similar, i just connected over smb and used robocopy on the windows box to pull the files. I find the command line switches for robocopy easier than rsync.
