any good native utilities out there to copy filesystems
I am running SLES 9 with a newly attached HDS SAN. I am in the process of moving filesystems from the internal raid array to the new SAN, and am curios on what would be a good utility to copy the filesystems over. I want to keep all attributes intact as well as the links. I tried the 'cp' command, but it doesn't appear to copy over '.*' files at the lowest level of the filesystem. eg.
cp --preserve=all -rv /src_filesystem/.* /dest_filesystem
This will copy over all files and directories, unless there are any . files at the /src_filesystem level. What do you guys like to use?
Thanks in advance,
