    I was trying to migrate our Windows 2000 file server to a Windows 2003 server
    and I am having an issue with the sharing permissions. I notice when the
    shares are migrated to the new server, and after they are finalized, etc.,
    the permissions folder under the Shairing Tab only contains the
    Administrators group. Is there a way to change this to authenticated users
    as the defualt?

  2. When "Copy Security Settings" checkbox is selected (which is the default),
    FSMT will try to set file and shared folders security on the target server
    to be exactly the same as on the source servers.
    You can change this behavior by unselecting the checkbox (on a Source Server
    setup page) - then FSMT sets 'Administrators only" access to the target
    folders.

    You can verify the success of the operations by clicking View Report...
    button and reviewing the report.

    Thanks

    Hi Mark. Thanks for the fast reply. The problem is not with the NTFS
    security permissions under the Security tab for the folder I want to share,
    those are copied over just fine (I have left "Copy Security Settings"
    checked). The problem is with the permissions listed under the Permissions
    button under the Sharing tab. The entry on the source server was listed as
    Everyone/Full Control, but after migrating to the new server, these
    permissions now list Administrators/Full Control. So even though the correct
    permissions are listed under the Security tab, the incorrect permissions are
    listed under the Sharing tab.

  4. Are there any error/warning messages in the report? Does the report contains
    links to "files with errors" ?
    The list of per-file issues are kept in files with .csv extension in the
    Project Directory, side by side with .XML project file and HTML reports.
    FSMT handles Shared Folders security and NTFS folders security using the
    same approach - it tries to have the security settings unchanged; in cases
    when FSMT has to change the settings it will log a message to the report
    and/or .csv file.
