Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP new motherboard

If he tars it up and uses the -p switch, he'll preserve the permissions.  If he tar.gz's it, he'll save some disk space too, if that's a concern.  The other way is to nfs-mount it and do a cp -Rp, which will also preserve permissions...if he can get NFS to start on that server.

Is this stored on the server?  If you can get in as root you can
access anything.  Or, as long as the network is working you can
copy it out with samba or ftp as the user in question or with
scp or rsync as the user or root.  For example if you have another
machine with enough disk space you can grab the entire /home
directory with something like:
rsync -essh -av root server:/home .
 (that's a period at the end, meaning put it in the current directory)
This will also work from a windows box with the cygwin utilities
from http://www.cygwin.com if you add rsync and openssh to the base
install.  You'll lose the ownership and permissions on the files when
copying to windows but it's better than nothing.
