SID change in file permissions

Dear experts,

I have 5 node  MS Cluster  serving file shares (2008 OS physical servers)  and I have now build 5 node MS cluster file servers on Vmware.  

I will be restoring data to new VM  nodes as I believe it is a  lot easier than doing manual data copy....

One thing I am concerned with is permissions. Do I need to worry about SIDs?   I am not making a massive change in data structure. Only one folder now will be a parent folder and that is it.   my worry is that permissions may not work.

thanks

Did you back up the data with permissions in the first place? and how much data is it?

If you restore the data with permissions, you should be fine.. but you need to maintain the data structure.

If your nodes belong to the same domain and you restore the permissions, then you should be fine. But without that, what you could do is restore the data, and then use robocopy (or get-acl/set-acl) to fix the permissions.. (or any number of tools).
