snapmirror folder from qtree to qtree root

Hello all,

It is possible to snapmirror a folder inside a qtree into the root of a other qtree?

I have a non qtree Cifs Volume with al lot of shares.

In the first step i snapmirror the non qtree data into a qtree.

In the next i try to snapmirror only the "UserHome" Folder into a new qtree for enable quotas.

Is snapmirror the right way?

No. SnapMirror is only between volumes or qtrees. You can use ndmpcopy to copy other data (but it is not incremental, so make sure you stop access to source folder or use snapshot).

Ok, I suspected it.
Remains by NDMP Copy the Windows ACL?

Yes, it should copy all file attributes including security descriptors. You probably need to ensure target directory has the same security style as source.

Thanks for the help. I will test in my simulator.
If I have the whole process in a PowerShell script, I'll post it here.
