hi,

i have this NAS box (BlueArc Titan) where CIFS clients save their
files. i want to mount the drives on this NAS box from some client ...
using *NFS* ... and copy those files to a tape drive attached to that
client

if i did that, i'm guessing that my tapes would contain my files ...
probably the directory structure too ... but would lose permissions
information

have you ever explored this issue? know of a work-around?
