File & Directory Name Space modifcation ...

I need to change the name space of files & directories from NFS to
LONG ... Is there a utility or method to perfom this task without doing
each & every individual file/dir ?

Many of our files inherited the NFS name space from the previous UNIX
environment and when we synchronize these files to a main files server,
Task Master v4.07, all NFS get converted to DOS (7~.3) ...

Thoughts ??

Thanks ...

Thats sounds like a TaskMaster bug!

There is no way to change the owning name space of existing files and
directories from a client based application, other than by copying them and
creating them in the desired name space, then deleting the originals. I
believe there are server based APIs for changing the owning name space.
