I need script Copy permissions of files and folders from one server to another

Hi..
I have 2 servers with linux suse10.

I made a mistake and on one of the servers changed with chmod the permission of root in directory /.
In the other servers the permissions are correct

Please i need a script, to change the permissions of one server 1, using the same permission of the other server 2...

Hi.

Not sure if this is so great, but based on this thread: https://www.unix.com/unix-dummies-que...ssion-bit.html

Run this on the server with the good permissions:
Code:
find / -type f -o -type d 2>/dev/null | while read FILE; do
  perl -le'
    printf "chmod %o \"%s\"\n", 07777 & (stat)[2], $_
    for @ARGV
  ' "$FILE"
done > /tmp/file_perms.sh

Copy and run /tmp/file_perms.sh on the server with the "bad" permissions.

Good luck Smilie

Were you logged in as "root"?
What directory were you in at the time?
What did you type?

Good questions.

I might have made a bit of an assumption. Forget the script!

But there shouldn't be too many files in / itself, so I was guessing it was bad Smilie

The user root.

and the directorys. i have in a file generate with this script.

i start the chmod in /

What was the current working directory at the time? Was it "/" or "/root" or some other directory?

What did you actually type?
Or if this is a script, what is in the script?

Do commands on the server still work?
