Robocopy - ERROR : You do not have the Manage Auditing user right.

    Question

  • I'm trying to copy files between servers in different domains, while retaining ntfs permissions.  The souce and destination are in different domains, but there is a trust in place.  Source is WinXP based NAS device.  Destination is windows 2008 server.  I'm executing the command on the win2k8 box.  I'm an domain admin on both machines.

    I keep getting this error:

    ERROR : You do not have the Manage Auditing user right.

    How do I give myself this "Manage Auditing" user right?

     

     

    U:\>robocopy \\dellnas1\users\fumstead \\lanpa\mad\home\fumstead /e /copyall

       Source : \\dellnas1\users\fumstead\
         Dest : \\lanpa\mad\home\fumstead\

        Files : *.*

      Options : *.* /S /E /COPYALL /R:1000000 /W:30

    ERROR : You do not have the Manage Auditing user right.
    *****  You need this to copy auditing information (/COPY:U or /COPYALL).

           Simple Usage :: ROBOCOPY source destination /MIR

                 source :: Source Directory (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
            destination :: Destination Dir  (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
                   /MIR :: Mirror a complete directory tree.

        For more usage information run ROBOCOPY /?


    ****  /MIR can DELETE files as well as copy them !

    If I exclude the auditing I get this error:

    2009/01/29 11:33:05 ERROR 1307 (0x0000051B) Copying NTFS Security to Destination
     File \\dellnas1\users\fumstead\WINDOWS\Msflxgrd.ocx
    This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.

    What's it mean?

  • Hi Rich,


    It seems that the user doesn't have full control on ntfs and share permission on the target share. Would you please verify that the logon domain admin has full control permission on the target share to test? if you still cannot copy the data in this case, i'd suggest you use NTBackup on the Windows to backup and migrate the data to the new box.

    Thanks and regards,

  • Yes, right clicking on command prompt and selecting run as administrator will work.

    However, if you run robocopies like i do through schedule tasks then it is a bit different.  Once you setup the schedule task, right click on the task and under the general tab select run whether user is logged on or not and select run with highest privileges.  Then click ok and run the task.  This of course is how to do it in windows 2008.  I haven't tried it in windows 2003.
