    I've only used it between local volumes here, NFS may work though.

    Edit: Assume it's ls -ale that is showing no ACLs?

    Ok I've mounted the 'old' homes share on the new server with NFS and it comes back with 'access control lists are not supported or currently disabled on homes'
    Running it on the server its being shared from, on the local hard disk, it says they are supported

    ls- ale just shows me the owner (admin) and staff. I'd been checking the ACL through server admin>file sharing

    I think you are going to have to look at something like tar or asr

    Filesystem metadata support - Mac OS X Server FAQ

    Either that or copy the files and resource forks and then reset the permissions on the folders after the move.

    asr doesnt sound like a bad idea actually.

    Theoretically could I use something like CCC to create an image of that drive and then restore it to the new one?

    Even disk utility will do for a full image

    Just done a incremental image as a test and it does indeed restore fine with all permissions.
    Looks like the best way!

    Thanks for all your help. Shame there isnt a more simple way of doing it!

    A simple straight copy could be done with :

    sudo ditto -V /Volumes/Source /Volumes/Destination

    Nice thing about ditto is that it preserves resource forks, meta-data, extended attributes and ACL's unless you tell it not to, good practice to run it as sudo also.
