Move fileshare to new domain with ACLs intact

Anders Björling 20 Reputation points

We want to move an old fileshare containing 5000 folders with ACLs to a new domain that is trusted. All users will remain in the old domain but we want new groups created in the new domain.

The fileshare is quite a mess and has been used for 15 years.

What tool could help us with this?

Could storage migration service (SMS) do this?

A family of Microsoft operating systems that run across personal computers, tablets, laptops, phones, internet of things devices, self-contained mixed reality headsets, large collaboration screens, and other devices.

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having query\issues related to FileServer.

    1. You can use icacls to export and import your permissions, while also replacing any group/user.

    Example: icacls D:\Test\ /save Main_C_Perms.cfg /t /c

    Then you can import them back: icacls D:\ /restore Main_C_Perms.cfg /t /c

    1. OR You can use Robocopy to move data from one server to another with permissions

    Robocopy /mir /sec /secfix to copy everything in-tact to the new server
