Scenario is to replicate all the directories,sub-directories,files,symbolic links present in Linux development Server to Linux QA Server.
Lot of unix users also to be created.
Consider an unix user -
edwprod , there are lot of sub-directories and soft link present inside this folder
-rwxrwxrwx 1 edwprod edwprod 0 Jan 25 13:23 ksh lrwxrwxrwx 1 edwprod edwprod 32 Jan 30 06:30 output -> /apps/application_scripts/output lrwxrwxrwx 1 edwprod edwprod 30 Jan 30 07:02 wp37 -> /apps/application_scripts/wp37 lrwxrwxrwx 1 edwprod edwprod 32 Jan 31 05:57 in_dir -> /apps/application_scripts/in_dir lrwxrwxrwx 1 edwprod edwprod 30 Jan 31 10:57 SVEN -> /apps/application_scripts/SVEN drwxrwxrwx 6 edwprod edwprod 1024 Feb 1 08:45 bin
This is how the directory looks like. All the directories reside inside folder
Both the directory tree should be replicated in Linux QA Server without affecting the symbolic links. Let me know the best possible way to do it?
