I want to copy from one shared folder to another server shared folder retaining NTFS permissions exactly as source.

Both servers are windows 2012 R2. Source is the DC & destination server is a member server.

Please suggest some GUI tool as well as exact command if possible.

Thanks in advance. :)

For extra ease, map them temporarily as drive letters.
Then follow these MS steps (dating from before 2000, but it's still valid):

Should work if you use the "Copy NTFS permissions" option box checked.

third-party tools should work as soon as they say copying NTFS permissions is supported.

but why choose those alternatives while built-in utilities can do the same thing? be aware, the built-in XCOPY and ROBOCOPY come with the OS have the best compatibility.

Total commander did not copy NTFS permissions as source.

I guess you are right @Bing CISM / CISSP

What should be the command for robocopy?
robocopy "\\Source server\folder\" "\\Target server\folder\" /MIR /COPY:DATSOU /ZB /R:1 /W:10 /TEE /log:<log path.txt>
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733145.aspx 

Is robocopy better or xcopy?

your ROBOCOPY command line looks fine for me.

generally speaking, ROBOCOPY replaces XCOPY, with more options.

you might be curious about what's the point for MS to keep the two in the same Windows of today while one can replace the other. to keep backward compatibility.

XCOPY came from DOS age and was widely available on platforms from DOS to OS/2 then NT, heaps of administrator's batch files were/are based on this command, MS can't simply remove it just because a better utility is available starting from NT.

I would go with Robocopy.  If you want a gui version

Robocopy cmd worked well.
Robocopy GUI is not the real GUI, you need to know all the command line parameters to use this GUI. It only save you from syntax & spelling errors.
