Best way to copy data between FS

Hi,

I have to migrate data between two NAS filers. NFS shares of second filer are already mounted under temporary mountpoints. Can you please advice, which is the best way to copy data between filesystems?

Thanks.

Hi,

You can use rsync to copy the data from source to destination .

If its not installed on your server, you can dowload if from

Thanks

ok if the fieles are no bigger as 2 GB you could yous find + cpio because cpio can copy only smaller than 2 GB.

Hi:

My choice would be:

# cd srcdir && pax -r -w -pe . dstdir

This will also handle largefiles.
