Hi @all!
Thanks for that quick answers.
I first copy the files from a Win-Client to a Linux-Server with rsync. After that I (try to) use robocopy to transfer the ACLs.
But I don't know where and what is copied. Because I don't see anything on the Linux-Server.
Could someone help me out? Or give me some kind of "howto"?
Thanks again.
