We have a server that crashed (motherboard failure) while I was in the process of virtualizing it...
I already had the VM ready to go, and the old server was just two HDD's in RAID 1 so I was able to access the files and the plan is to transfer them to the new server..
Long story short, I have no way of directly connecting the HDD from the old server (SATA) to my SAN, so the easiest method was to connect it externally using a USB to SATA dock and transfer the files directly from the now external drive to the new VM..
The problem is that while transferring some (not all) files, I get an access denied error.
I have transferred ownership of the folder I'm trying to copy, actually of the entire external drive, to my Domain Admin account and after getting the same error, I even tried changing the ownership to "Everyone"... same result. I have also ensured that the domain admins group, my domain admin account and everyone has Full Control rights on the drive.. And yet I still get the same error...
The machine I'm using to transfer the files is a Windows 7 Pro machine.
The VM the files are being transferred to is a Windows 2012 R2 machine that is not yet on the domain. I'm logged in through the Administrator account.
Any help that can be provided will be greatly appreciated, this server is for a team of 20+ employee's that are basically not going to be working Monday unless I get this server up this weekend!
