Copy/move folders from OES linux (NSS) to OES Linux (NSS)

Hello,

I have to move a few folders, not volumes, from one server to another.
Both servers are OES2 Linux NSS.
The user- and group permissions should also be copied with the data.

When I used Netware, it was easy tot do with the Novell Server Consolidation and Migration Toolkit, but unfortunately the migration from one OES-server to another is not supported.

Does anyone have a suggestion how to copy this data? Of course, setting the permissions manually is not an option:-(

Thanks in advance,

Peter

You can use the migfiles command from a terminal window on the destination server to move files with the permissions or just use the NetWare copy utility from a Windows workstations with the Novell client.

Well,

Did somebody actually tested this? I tried with every syntax combination and nothing happens (migfiles ask for username and pasword and stand still after that).

i've done several migration using migfiles without a problem

You should see smdr start on the source server, if not try updating sms on the source server to the latest version (i've had this help me out once)

duhh, have to learn to read 😉
i've only done netware - linux migrations this way

You can also move files and use the rights.exe from the sys:\public directory to read and apply rights
