How do you copy mac symlinks when many copy tools won't copy it ?- file server migration


I need to migrate Windows Server 2008r2 files and folders to Netapp CIFS.  I have found that Robocopy does not copy symlinks that the macs may create in their applications (and perhaps elsewhere), and of course I want an exact copy if that is possible. (Oddly despite not copying over the symlinks, these .app files (applications) still appear to work.)  Though I prefer something like a Robocopy so that I can do smaller sets of data, the only closest thing I have seen to getting me there is to use OSSV as suggested by:

If I must use Robocopy or a similar tool, does anyone know an easy non-time-consuming method of verifying the copy (CRC or Checksum)?
