Subject copying files with NTFS-ACL ( a la "xcopy /o")
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2003 14:09:12 GMT
Hi all,

I am looking for a way to copy entire directory trees (filesets minus 
some excludes) across hosts, while preserving file ownership and file 

Thus I needed a "xcopy /o"-wrapper task for copying to mapped drives
or something to serialize a "file with ACL"-object in order to send it 
to another ant (rant - Remote ant), which would then deserialize it and 
put it as file on the disk.

For *NIXers:
I wanted to play the good old
"user@host > (cd /from && tar -cf -) | ssh (cd /to && tar -xf - ) "
game - this time from W2k to W2k...

If anybody has tried this yet, please give me a hint.

Thank you very much in advance,
