Subject RE: scp question - very urgent
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2005 16:49:27 GMT
The <scp> task has no option to preserve symbolic links currently. The <tar> task
should preserve symbolic links. You can also use <sshexec> to create symbolic links
remotely.

You build file should do the following:

<tar> the stuff locally that you want to copy to the remote hosts.
<scp> the tarfile to the remote hosts.
<sshexec> to the remote hosts to untar the tarfile.

I hope this helps.
