Permissions

I have got one windows 2003 (Domain Controller) server replicating to another windows 2003 (Domain Controller) server using Rsync 2.0.2! I am only replicating data I am not replicating any programs ONLY DATA that is shared on the Network. I am having troulbe getting the permissions to copy over with the data I am copying. Is there away to copy permissions with RSYNC in a Windows Enviroment? If so please help... I am using the -rvpgt switches with in Rysnc but they seem uneffictive as far as the permissions go, everything else works fine!

Re: Permissions

Sorry to tell you that (cw)Rsync does not support transfer of windows permissions.

What you can do is to use Microsoft's Robocopy to transfer security information AFTER your rsync session. Check Microsoft article How to Use Robocopy to Copy Security Information Without Copying Any File Data for more information.
