Re: Copy between two machines?

What OS are you using?  HP-UX or Linux?

How are the machines connected?  NFS?

(I asked the moderators to move it to the correct board.)

Using the correct options to cp -p, with preserve ownership and permissions.  And with -r preserve symlink.

(Same with scp/rcp.)

Of course you could use pax/tar or fbackup/frecover.

via tar and ssh

 

cd source_dir; tar -cf - . | ssh user@targethost "cd target_dir; tar -xvf -"
