I am going to migrate files from a Solaris server to NetApp Ontap 9 filer
As many files in the Solaris server have ACL in it, I shared the NetApp filer as NFSv4.
However, it seems that when files are copied from Solaris to the NFSv4 share, all ACL were gone.
Does anyone know of any file copy tools which can preserve ACLs when copying files to NFSv4 shares?
Thanks in advance

Please check if NFSv4.0 ACL Support is enabled on the vserver. Deafult is disabled. Refer http://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.dot-cm-cmpr-910%2Fvserver__nfs__modify.html
Also check the other ACL options.

First of all, thank you for your reply.
NFSv4 ACL support was enabled on the Netapp Filer. No problem using it.
The problem was that ACL entries were not preserved when copying or tar from source to Netapp filer.
My question is what file copying tools can preserve ACL
for example, when using cp --preseve=xattr , I get the following message
cp: setting attribute 'system.nfs4_acl' for 'system.nfs4_acl': Invalid argument
