How about "net share migrate" command?

I once tried to examine this command like:

$ net -S oldsrv rpc share migrate all --destination newsrv --acls temp2
migrating: [TEMP2], path: C:\TEMP2, comment: comments, without share-ACLs
syncing    [TEMP2] files and directories including ACLs, without DOS Attributes
migrating: [TEMP2], path: C:\TEMP2, comment: comments, including share-ACLs

Note that you must set "add share command" parameter in the target server.

And "force unknown acl user = yes" may be helpfull.
