Hello all, I have setup a DBFS repository and I trying to move the contents of various network files sytems in this system via webdav... The issue I am having is the dates on the files is being changed the current date.

Is it possible to keep the current dates when moving the files into the repository files systems??

Cheers,

Derek

Hi Derek,

You might try this:

Mount your network drive as an DBFS, then copy from one

repository to the other. This should retain that info.

I haven't tested it directly, but I hear it should work.

If you want to keep the timestamps, the best thing you can do is to use GNU Tar, then compress the files and move the tar file to the DBFS location, once there uncompress. The dates are kept. Windows copy is not valid to keep timestamps. Zip format also has problems with folders.

Why don´t you use the mount service to access the remote share via fsdb repositories?

Hi Derek,

Sorry to say this but you might have to write a migration program in JAVA ( a PAR ).
