    Technically, you cannot copy permissions, because the old permissions are based on the old SIDs of the original users and groups, and when you create new ones, you create new SIDs. Even if you would copy them, it would not work because the permissions would be based on the original SIDs.

    What you have to do is save the permissions into a text file using a utility, then run another utility to rebuild the permissions on the copied files. You might want to search google to see if anyone has done this using cacls/xcacls.exe

    Permissions are the only thing Hyena can't copy.

    Does Hyena offer any solution to migrate users, groups, shares, and all of their corresponding permissions without any problems?

    The problem is newly created users and groups will get a new SID on the new computer. Hyena is copying by name, but they no longer match the SID on the target computer, which is why you see it that way when you look at security on the files/directories. Unfortunately Hyena is not able to control the SID to have it match your data.

    Coping Shares

    I am working on replacing a current server which will require me to migrate all users, groups, and shares from my current server 2003 machine to a new server 2003 machine. I have been able to successfully migrate all of the users, groups, and their permissions without any problems. However, when I try to move over the shares along with share security and NTFS permissions it copies each users or group SID instead of the actual name of the user or group. Is there a way that Hyena will copy the user by name thus preserving all of the permissions? Thank you.
