File Server Migration Issue with ADMT

Guys one more query please related to file server migration.
On file server we have some shared directories with very confidential data having very specific NTFS permissions and only company auditors have access to those directories.
Though I am running as Domain Administrator, I am not able to open those directories interactively and through UNC shared path unless I take ownership of those folders.
As per our company security policy, changing folder ownership is not allowed
Now we are going to migrate file server with ADMT to new domain.
Will ADMT be able to translate security on above shared folders without taking their ownership and granting full control permissions manually ?
Thanks in advance.

I have gone through above link.
I am not copying data from any source to any destination.
I wanted to just translate security of file server data from source domain to target domain.
I don't think Robocopy is providing this kind of functionality.
Correct me if I am wrong.

I have checked both articles
I have gone through Robocopy syntax as well.It works only if source and destination is provided.
I neither have any source location nor destination location.
I have all my data on server and only permissions need to be translated from one domain to another domain with ADMT
Any help related to ADMT please

helge Seracl is not useful as ADMT since ADMT works on SID and Setacl works on usernames or we need to create user mapping file for entire domain having thousands of accounts.
And this still doesnot answer my basic question
Any help related to ADMT please

Yes, it will work with ADMT.You need to migrate the file server with ADMT for this it does not require share folder permission ownership should be with admin.

File server migartion is same as migrating a workstation with ADMT.
