EMCopy - continued "Unable to set SD" (Error <5>) despite Admin privs on Windows FS source

All files are seen on the source, and they are indeed copied, but of course the ACLs are not as source?!

I am using mapped drives (per SMB-File-migration-to-EMC-Isilon docu49401 best practices) which I map via my Administrator account.

I recently set the /ifs to "root privilege" via the above doc - that made no difference.

Not all files are getting the Unable to set SD error - 630 out of 1168 files copied receive the error.  Example is:

TH061 : 16:18:57 : Y:\cyjohnson\Clute_Wealth_Lapse_Ltr.doc -> X:\data\groups\cambridge\users\cyjohnson\Clute_Wealth_Lapse_Ltr.doc


TH061 : 16:19:02 : ERROR (5) : X:\data\groups\cambridge\users\cyjohnson\Clute_Wealth_Lapse_Ltr.doc -> Unable to set SD

Here is what I would try...

- identify the user account used for running EMCopy (admin account you are using)

- Add that account to the local administrator group and local backup group on the Windows file server

- allow that account to “run as root” on the Isilon share

Hopefully that helps!
