Copy folder and files from unix server to linux server

We would be migrating unix solaries to Linux redhat.
Basically source is unix and target is linux.

i would like to copy entire file system unix/source/* to target linux/souce/*
but target linux has only folder setup so what ever files copied need to be placed in the linux server with same folder.
I am not so familar with unix world.
Please help me to copy the source filesystem to taget filesystem with out changing owner and permission.
what would be the best way to accompalsi this item.
We want to write csh Shell automated script to copy one server filesystem ( unix) to another server ( linux 2.6) and make sure the file permission not be changed.

I dont know which is the one is so good , SCP , tar

Please do the needful.
Thanks.

SWITCH_ROOT(8)						       System Administration						    SWITCH_ROOT(8)

NAME
switch_root - switch to another filesystem as the root of the mount tree SYNOPSIS
switch_root [-hV] switch_root newroot init [arg...] DESCRIPTION
switch_root moves already mounted /proc, /dev, /sys and /run to newroot and makes newroot the new root filesystem and starts init process. WARNING: switch_root removes recursively all files and directories on the current root filesystem. OPTIONS
-h, --help Display help text and exit. -V, --version Display version information and exit. RETURN VALUE
switch_root returns 0 on success and 1 on failure. NOTES
switch_root will fail to function if newroot is not the root of a mount. If you want to switch root into a directory that does not meet this requirement then you can first use a bind-mounting trick to turn any directory into a mount point: mount --bind $DIR $DIR SEE ALSO
chroot(2), init(8), mkinitrd(8), mount(8) AUTHORS
Peter Jones <pjones@redhat.com> Jeremy Katz <katzj@redhat.com> Karel Zak <kzak@redhat.com> AVAILABILITY
The switch_root command is part of the util-linux package and is available from https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/util-linux/. util-linux June 2009 SWITCH_ROOT(8)
