Robocopy'ing from the Isilon

Has anyone used robocopy to copy permissions from the Isilon?  If I user the following command using the "U" I get the following errors

robocopy /E /COPYSmiley Very HappyATSOU /DCOPY:T y:\ E:\Test-Mirror-RoboCopy /LOG:"C:\robocopy-TestRobocopy-2014-02-19-0952.txt" /tee

"ERROR 5 (0x00000005) Copying NTFS Security to Destination File"


Would anyone be able to explain why?



If I run it without the "U" the file appear to copy over fine with the ownership, but it does not copy over the NTFS permissions :/

Re: Robocopy'ing from the Isilon

account that you use for robocopy, give it "root" rights on the share.

Dynamox,

I ran this command using my admin account which I gave Full Control (NTFS), Full Control (SMB Share)/Run as Root.  I still could not run that command with the "U" without receiving those errors.  Any chance there is another work around?

Re: Robocopy'ing from the Isilon

do you have auditing enabled on Isilon, is that why you care about copying that info ?

Re: Robocopy'ing from the Isilon

did you actually configure auditing on the file system/folder you are trying to copy ? (In windows explorer, Auditing tab under Advanced Security)

Re: Robocopy'ing from the Isilon

Yikes, I don't have permissions to view or edit, and I am an admin on on this folder.  Does the Isilon even support this feature?  No matter where I go I don't seem to have permissions view or edit this.  Should I be concerned?

Thank you,
