I hav a problem porting my ACLS from my old filserver to a new one...



My old Fileserver:

I have my shares on a partition supporting acls with ext3

/dev/md0 on /data/raid type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)



My new Fileserver:

/dev/md0 on /data/raid type ext4 (rw,acl,user_xattr)



Now I copied all my shares to the new Fileserver with rsync and backed
up my acls with:


getfacl -R > acls-fileserver.facl


I copyied the file "acls-fileserver.facl" to the new one and tried to

all the acls to the files and directories with:


setfacl -restore=acls-fileserver.facl 


There I keep getting an error 

"Invalid argument in line 75635"

Sometimes sonner sometimes later.


I also had: "Invalid argument in line 14"


I use getfacl / setfacl Version 2.5.1


Thanks for your help in advance!
