    HI all,
    I am trying to copy the users files from 2003dc to 2008dc (virtual server).
    I tried robocopy but when it copies the folders it does not do the
    permissions correctly. It puts the sid number instead of the username in the
    Can someone tell me what might be happending? It sets the rights correctly
    but not the name.

  2. Hello Sher,

    Did you copy between the domains where a trust is configured? So the user
    accounts are existing in the target domain?

    Best regards
